This committee takes places in 1787, in the Pennsylvania State House of Philadelphia. Delegates from the ports of New England to the plantations of the Chesapeake to the rice fields of South Carolina will gather to discuss the future of the United States. After a failed attempt at government under the Articles of Confederation, delegates will come together in the hopes of creating a stable framework for their new nation. The Constitutional Convention represents various clashing interests. Slave owners sit alongside abolitionists, delegates fighting against a strong government stare at those hopeful for a powerful government. Questions of representation, slavery, and individual liberties will be brought to the table. Each position brings with them personal opinions and stances which will affect this committee greatly. Whatever the position’s convictions, they must be put aside for the greater good of this nation. In troubling times such as these, it is more imperative now than ever that we draft a Constitution to guide our nation into the future.
