New York was 11th to ratify the U.S. Constitution, thereby becoming a state under the Constitution. They were also the last state to sign the Constitution before the 1st Congress assembled for the 1st time in March 1789.
I dont know!!!! Its not my fault your dumb Virginia and NY were reluctant to ratify because the constitution did not, yet, contain the Bill of Rights (the amendments). The Bill of Rights protect individual freedoms.
