Constitution Thursday – The Journey of 1000 Steps
The Convention is over, and the delegates disperse home. George Washington can hardly wait to get out of town and on his way back to Mt. Vernon. He is so anxious to leave, that it almost costs him his life.
The issue is now before the States to decide. Ratification and Union or reject the proposed Constitution and try to go it alone or in small groups.
Two opposing ideologies will coalesce around the debate. One Conservative and liberty minded. The other, radical and focused on a much different – and much bigger – goal. Can only one succeed and push the other into the pages of history?
Or is there yet still room for compromise?
