The delegates of the constitutional convention originally met for what purpose?
The delegates to the Constitutional Convention originally met to reform the Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation were the guidelines for the first national government of the United States. However, they were weak and did not give enough power to the national government so that it was able to hold all of the separate states together. That is why they wanted to reform it. When they started the convention, they discovered that since the Articles of Confederation were so fundamentally flawed it would be better to just come up with an entirely new form of government. So they created the Constitution of the United States of America, which is still used today.

What happened at the Constitutional Convention to cause Political Parties?
== Political parties didn't really come until after the Constitutional Convention. At the CC, everyone was in pretty much agreement that the Constitution had to be fixed, and fast. Of course, there were some differences, but the first political parties didn't evolve until Washington's presidency. In his presidency, two of his cabinet members, Alexander Hamilton (Treasury) and Thomas Jefferson (State), did not agree on anything at all and hated each other, and the first political parties, the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans, were formed.
