This Day in History 1787 The Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia approves the constitution for the United States of America. The site Teaching American History.org at http://teachingamericanhistory.org/convention/lloyd.html gives a good, logically arranged look at the constitutional convention where the Constitution was formulated and signed. Great ideas for teachers of American history or history buffs.
The Avalon Project at Yale Law School has transcripts of the notes of the debates at the convention as documented by James Madison (delegate, future member of the House of Representatives, U.S. secretary of state, and president) online at http://www.yale.edu/lawweb/avalon/debates/debcont.htm .
Sorry I didn’t get an entry posted for the 16th. I had out of town company and just didn’t have the time! Not much going on with my current crochet project—a granny square afghan that I am making for a Christmas present for my son and his wife. Just haven’t had the time to work on sewing those squares together. I felt such as huge sense of accomplishment when I got all 165 squares made that I’m finding it hard to get and stay motivated with the sewing together! Oh well, I still have time before Christmas! LOL!
