Best Answer

The last four states to ratify the Constitution were Virginia (June 25, 1788), New York (July 26, 1788), North Carolina (November 21, 1789), and Rhode Island (May 29, 1790). Rhode Island had refused to send delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. As the Constitution only need the approval of nine states to take effect, it was already the supreme law of the land at the time of the last four states' ratification.

yesActually, no. The last two "states" to actually ratify the US Constitution were Rhode Island and Vermont.North Carolina and Rhode Island were the last of the "original 13 states" to ratify the US Constitution.Strictly speaking, Vermont's ratification was unnecessary since it was admitted to the union as the 14th state after all of the original 13 states had ratified the Constitution, but it did ratify it.
