The Constitutional Convention began in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on May 25, 1787. Originally set to begin on May 14, a quorum was not achieved until May 25.
The Library of Congress recently released new high-resolution scanned images of James Madison’s Notes on the Constitutional Convention - a huge leap forward from the difficult-to-read scanned microfilm images that were previously available to the public.
