James Madison claims that he kept notes on the proceedings. He later used the alleged notes to write about the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Professor Herbert J. Storing, has written works on the anti-federalists. These were the people who did not want the Constitution, and prefered to retain a Confederation where states retained supreme authority within the confines of their borders. See The; "Secret Proceedings of the Constitutional Convention of 1787." James Madison. Investigate the Anti-Federalists for the democratic tradition; Individual Rights and the implementation of the "Bill of Rights." Herbert J. Storing Reference Forest Mcdonalds works for insight into the Constitutional Convention of 1787. " E Plubris Unum: The Formation of the American Republic." Considered one of top three authorities; Highly readable, enlightening. Mcdonalds works are often used in both undergraduate and graduate level classes and programs.
