Each of these goals would be difficult in its own right. Reconstruction demanded them all, and…

When the Constitutional Convention ended in September 1787, a widespread period of public debate over the merits of the plan began. This debate took place out of doors – in churches, taverns and newspapers, by both proponents and opponents – and indoors – in state conventions held in each of the 13 states.
