Q87. “How long did it take to write the original
Constitution?”

A. The question is not as straight forward as it might sound. The
Constitutional Convention made many drafts and many revisions to the
Constitution. Better, perhaps, to note when the Convention started, May 25,
1787; and when it adjourned, September 17, 1787, or 116 days.
