Everybody knows that America declared its independence in 1776, but the young republic did not immediately get into one indivisible nation of united states. Here is the unforgettable story of 55 men who created a Constitution in 1787 that gave the struggling new government a foundation that has held strong ever since. Should be invaluable.--Kirkus Reviews. Full-color illustrations.
