The Constitution had finally be drafted after four months of debate. However, after they attached their names to this new Constitution it was getting ready to face probably its hardest challenge. Convincing the states to ratify it. So beings the journey.

And, it started with this letter written by George Washington dated September 17, 1787. This letter was written so that it may convince the states, not only of the importance of their vote, but for the importance of their support to ratify it.

For the Constitution to go into effect, not every state had to vote for it. Only nine of the thirteen were needed. But, to get the approval of the largest states, they knew their work would not be complete.

As we know through history, each state would finally put their name to the Constitution.
