The Founding Fathers had worked hard through the long, hot summer of 1787. When all was said and done, the foundation of America's government had been poured into the Constitution of the United Sates. Their work, however, was not yet finished. The States, in adopting the new Constitution, argued that the next layer of the foundation must establish and protect the rights of individual citizens.
