Completion of three volumes and work on two more volumes of documents related to the ratification of the Constitution. (36 months)

Thousands of libraries, historical societies, government offices, private collections and all newspapers, books, pamphlets, and broadsides of the period 1787 to 1791 have been searched for documents relating to the adoption of the Constitution of 1787 and the drafting and adoption of the Bill of Rights. These documents are arranged and edited for publication in book form. All documents in the volumes and all supplemental documents not included in the volumes will be placed online with the University of Virginia Press' Rotunda. Twenty-one volumes of an anticipated twenty-eight volumes have been published. During this grant cycle three Rhode Island volumes will be published and progress will be made on the volume containing Maryland's and South Carolina's ratification.
