Description
General George Washington accepted to preside over the sessions of the convention held in the summer of 1787 AD in Philadelphia where the Constitution of the United States of America was produced. He never spoke at any of these sessions.

He signified his assent or dissent by smiling or frowning. He took, however, extensive notes from beginning to end.

The major project of the Convention was to bring together thirteen States, different not only in size and population but as the General said, “in manners, circumstances and prejudices, into one perfect national union.”

After the adoption of the Constitution at the Convention, George Washington sent to the States a copy of the text and added that “it has appeared to us the most advisable to secure all rights of independent sovereignty to each, and yet provide for the interest and safety of all.”

After the acceptance of enough States, the same George Washington admitted that such a success was “little short of a miracle.”
