Your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse
of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
tempest-tossed to me
I lift my lamp e

3! Following the victory at Yorktown, Washington refused the offer of
his troops to become king and returned to Philadelphia to aid with the
establishment of a permanent government for the new republicAa
loose alliance of sovereign states held together by the Articles of
Confederation. An envoy composed of Benjamin Franklin, John
Adams and John Jay was sent to negotiate with the British, It was not
until 1783 that the peace agreement, known as the Treaty of Paris, was
signed, guaranteeing the sovereignty of the United States of America.
The Articles of Confederation, despite many weaknesses, served to un-
ity the states until 1787 when a special convention was held at
Independence Hall in Philadelphia to revise them. The meeting was
attended by fifty-five of the most-prominent men of the day. Twentye
nine of the delegates representing a majority of the states met on May
25 and decided to draft an entirely new constitution rather than am-
mend the Articles of Confederation. The meeting then became known
as the Constitutional Convention.
4! The men who assembled for the Constitutional Convention were an
illustrious group with nearly every delegate a person of prominence in
his home state. A large majority favored a strong central government.
After four months of debate, on September 17, 1787, the new constitu-
tion was completed. ln a little more than four months, six states had
ratified the new constitution. Despite the good beginning, the fight for
ratification was bitter and it was not until September 13, 1788, that
the necessary two-thirds majority of the states had approved the docu-
ment and Congress could call for states to choose their electors and
congressmen. Several of the states had ratified the constitution with
the provision that it would be amended. Thus, as one of its first official
acts under the new constitution, the Congress added the first ten
amendments known as the Bill of Rights. Washington was un-
animously elected President and a new nation was launched on a
course of democracy.
