In 1787, many famous men during this time came together to write the Constitution. There were many names associated with this meeting including Federal Convention, Grand Convention at Philadelphia among a few other names.
The founding fathers as they were called wanted to create a document that would protect the rights of the people in the present and in the future. This document does just that. It is remarkable that we still follow a document that was written so long ago. The founding fathers did not want to make this document strict because they wanted to create amendments if needed.
