Few other government documents have influenced history as much as the U.S. Constitution. It laid the groundwork for the most stable democratic government in the world and provided inspiration to people struggling for freedom everywhere. ""How the U.S. Constitution Was Created"" is a compelling new title that traces the development of this four-page, handwritten document from its roots in the Declaration of Independence to its impact today. Interwoven throughout are the intriguing stories of the men who became symbols of the Constitution - including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson - and their roles in the birth of a new nation. Accentuated by photographs, sidebars, a glossary, and suggestions for further reading, this book is a vital resource for students seeking to gain a deeper perspective of how this great nation came to be.
