This book is a history of the Federal Convention in Philadelphia that resulted in the Constitution of the United States.
Margaret L. CoitA fascinating story brilliantly told…
Henry Steele CommagerThe most readable of all accounts of the Philadelphia convention. Miss Bowen has been successful beyond any of the general historians…she has brought to the retelling both imagination and art.
Allan NebinsOur greatest peacetime story is here retold in terms that would delight the general reader while satisfying the critical scholar.
