Why was the Constitution written?

The Constitution was written to explain that everyone can fight to for their independence and it states that it was the first time Americans had their Independence. The purpose of the Constitution was to write out how the government would be set up.



Prior to rebelling against their king and country the American revolutionaries had felt it necessary to spell out in the Declaration of Independence why they were taking such a serious measure. Writing a constitution, having gained their independence, was a logical next step to define, set out and explain a new style of government alien to most of the colonists. Interestingly the mother country had survived for over a thousand years without a written constitution.
