Constitutional Convention of 1787

The Constitutional Convention of 1787 met in the city of Philadelphia, in the very room where the Declaration of Independence had been signed eleven years earlier. It was attended by 55 delegates from all of the original thirteen united states, Rhode Island excepted. This Convention produced the United States Constitution, which was signed by 39 of the delegates on September 17, 1787. Below are the records of the debates, the notes taken by the several delegates of the Convention, and other records of the documents which led up the Constitution of the United States of America.

Hello Anonymous. Welcome to my blog.

My apologies, but I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you asking, what other names was the "Constitutional Convention" called?

If that is your question, than here are some other names:

"Convention of 1787"
"Philadelphian Convention" (this is what it was commonly called before the Constitution was ratified by the states.

I hope that helps.

However, if that was not your question, could you please make your question more specific? I will then try to give you a better answer.

Regards.
