    • HISTORICAL CONTENT:

      The Constitutional Convention (May 25-September 17, 1787), originally convened to revise the Articles of Confederation, instead decided to replace the Articles themselves with a new Constitution. The Articles have failed to solve old problems and created new ones for the fledgling republic. The new Constitution established a Federal Government headed by a president, a bicameral legislature, and an independent judiciary. It is one of the oldest written constitutions still in use.
