- The Constitution was written- The founding fathers wrote the ConstitutionThe Constitutional Convention was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania , from May to September 1787.Fyfty-five delegates from 12 of the original 13 states ( except for Rhode Island ) met to write amendments to the Articles of Confederation. The delegates met because many American leaders did not like the Articles. The national government under the Articles of Confederation was not strong enough. Instead of changing the articles of Confederation, the delegates decided to create a new governing document with a stronger national government---the Constitution. Each states sent delegates, who worked for four months in secret to allow for free and open discussion as they wrote the new document. The delegates who attended the Constitutional Convention are called " the Framers." On September 17 , 1787 , 39 of the delegates signed the new Constitution.

The constitution has been amended 27 times since 1787, along with 17 addition amendments


The question cannot be answered with a specific time because the Convention that wrote the Constitution took place over many months. The convention in Philadelphia, at which the Constitution was written, began on 25 May 1787. In September, a committee was assigned to write the final document. On September 17, 1787, forty-two of the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention held their final meeting. It was signed on Monday, 17 September 1787. The Convention lasted for 116 days.
