Thanks. Last Fall I read Miracle at Philadelphia by Catherine Drinker Bowen. She covered the first six weeks of daily events at the Convention pretty well. After that, she addressed topics, such as the New Jersey Plan, The Great Compromise, Slavery, Western Lands, Ratification, etc.

On finishing, I decided to read what the authors on the subject read, i.e. the record as written by the Framers. This began this last December and I took notes as I went along.

Additional companion books to the Convention I used:

Original Meanings, by Jack N. Rakove.

1787, The Grand Convention, by Clinton Rossiter.

Decision in Philadelphia, by Christopher and James Lincoln Collier.

I'm collating a final post on the Constitution for this afternoon. It will examine our governing document from a different perspective than usually seen at FR.
