The U. S. Constitution established a strong central government and also protected state sovereignty. But to say that something is of two parts is not to say that the parts are equal. Over and over, the convention delegates clashed over the rights and powers of these two parts. Slavery, a bill of rights, legislative representation—all the battles over these issues are enshrined in the language of the Constitution. This presentation will help you to fully appreciate the Constitution by better understanding the questions it sought to resolve.
The United States Constitution Boxed Set includes: The Constitutional Convention, The Ratification Debates, The Text of the United States Constitution, and The Bill of Rights and Additional Amendments.
