James Madison wiped his forehead for what seemed like the one hundredth time today. He had to do so to keep the sweat from dripping into his eyes. He looked over at Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was sweating also, his face shining as he fanned himself with a stack of papers. Seated on the stage, General George Washington was politely listening to Alexander Hamilton, representative from New York, as he explained why a larger government doesn’t have to mean a more dangerous government. Even General Washington, always so dignified and calm, looked uncomfortable in the heat.
And so begins the fascinating history of the constitutional convention. It's hard to imagine America ever faced times so hard, but in this book, just for kids, you'll find out what happened and what it was like to be a kid during these times.
