When was the constitution adopted by the continental congress?

This answer needs some explanation. The US Constitution was not "adopted" by the "continental congress." By that time there no longer was a "continental congress" in the same form as the one that had adopted the Declaration Of Independence. There was a "Congress" under the Articles of Confederation and it authorized the formation of a "Constitutional Convention" to revise the Articles of Confederation on February 21, 1787. On September 17, 1787, the Constitutional Convention adopted the final form of the US Constitution, presented it to Congress and recommended its ratification by the states. on September 28, 1787, Congress directed that the proposed Constitution be sent to the legislatures of each state so that they could form their own Constitutional Conventions for the purposes of ratifying the Constitution.
