George Washington’s Mount Vernon has released a new feature production titled, A More Perfect Union: George Washington and the Making of the Constitution. While America proved victorious in the Revolutionary War, it was far from certain that this new nation would survive, let alone thrive in the world. A More Perfect Union looks at the causes leading to the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, the many compromises included within the document, and the challenges in ratifying the constitution. Throughout the presentation, viewers will learn about the vital role that George Washington played in creating and ratifying the U.S. Constitution.
