The Constitution was signed yesterday, September 17th. Although many delegates weren’t completely satisfied, Gouverneur Morris captured the thinking of many of the delegates, when he said the Plan was the best that is to be attained. It’s now stood for 226 years after he said that.
It was a fun, overwhelming summer recreating the Convention on Twitter through @TweetTheDebates. Now that the Convention is on Twitter, we can start exploring and playing with the tweets, to tell stories about why our Constitution says what it does and why those decisions are still relevant and important today.
I’ll soon be back with a website update and a poster “map” of the Convention that will make the Twitter Convention more accessible. The poster will show a Constitution cheat sheet and make it easy to find the history of every clause in the Constitution.
