The Second Continental Congress was a convention of delegates from the Thirteen Colonies that met beginning in May 10, 1775, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
At the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 168 delegates from Virginia met to either reject or ratify the US Constitution. At the end of the convention, the delegates agreed to ratify the Constitution.
The representatives of the original 13 states sent to Philadelphia for the U.S. Constitutional Convention (originally "Philadelphia Convention") are called delegates. The resolution calling for delegates to the Convention was issued by the Continental Congress on February 21, 1787: "... it is expedient that on the second Monday in May next a Convention of delegates who shall have been appointed by the several States be held at Philladelphia for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation...."Although a total of 70 delegates were appointed by the States, 55 ended up attending (none came from Rhode Island), and but 39 actually signed the final document.
