History In A Nutshell, Episode 3 - Birth Of The Constitution

April 29, 2019 - Posted in Digital by Andrew Davis

The third installment of History In A Nutshell is perfect for Constitution Day, or the Fourth of July! After the American Revolutionary War, it was time for the newly formed United States of America to create its own government.  This episode explains the development of the Constitution, and how the previous documents - the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation, tie into the Constitution as we know it today! The episode also outlines why the Articles of Confederation failed, and the documents and political philosophers the Founding Fathers looked to when drafting the Constitution.
