The convention beginning on May 25, 1787, was referred to as the Phildelphia Convention or the Grand Convention, but because it actually led to the replacement of the Articles with a new Constitution, it is usually called the Constitutional Convention.

Did the framers disregard their original purpose for meeting in Philadelphia?

Yes, No and Maybe:The stated intention of the Philadelphia Convention was to discuss and try to correct flaws in the Articles of Confederation. They certainly did that. Yes, some of the delegates may have gone there with no intention of repairing a flawed document (the Band Aid approach) and fully intending to create a new and stronger central government (the Major Surgery approach). As radical as big change may have seemed it quickly became apparent that something on a grander scale was needed to unite all of these former British Colonies. No, they did study and discuss the flaws in the Articles of Confederation and then they resolved to move beyond the fixer-upper approach. Maybe they went beyond the set guidelines of the Convention's limited agenda. Big ideas can sometimes evolve into grand documents like the United States Constitution.

Why was the purpose of the Philadelphia Convention changed after Congress met?

Congress realized the Articles of Confederation were not working for the people of the United States, so they called for a Constitutional Convention to revise the Articles. They hoped that it would be possible to revise the Articles of Confederation to better unite the country through legal means. However, once the convention began, it became clear that the Articles were beyond repair, so the Constitution was created to replace them.

Did Declaration of Independence occur second?

No, It actually was created third. It is not recognized that after the Articles of Confederation there was another try to organize the country. It was called the United States of America's Doctrine. It contained what the Declaration of Independence had, but lacked tweaks that 13 states opposed to. Hope this helps
