How was the American constitution form
Had you Google-searched "American Constitution" there's a large number of websites to choose from.
Following the secession of the American colonist from the British Empire, colonist met for heated debate on what should be mandated as law for the new nation, USA. The US Constitution was only finalized after delegates from different colonies agreed on compromising their demands. It took over a year before all the colonies ratified (agreed) the provisions of the US Constitution, but the Bill of Rights was later added when more provisions to address other citizens' concerns. People were very skeptical of the concept of a "democratic" government because the colonist had all come from Europe, which is predominantly under a monarchy form of government. The prevailing attitude was, people who don't have a high education (reserved for rich aristocrats) are not capable of wise self government, so the concept of government democracy (government by the people) was an untested experiment, though it had its roots in ancient Greece; as far back as the era of Plato and Aristotle.
