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.

Which state did not attend the Constitutional Convention?

Rhode Island sent no delegates, for a couple of reasons:Rhode Island feared the increase in federal tariffs that a new Constitution would entail. As a maritime state, they would have been hit especially hard by a tariff. (In fact, a few years earlier, Rhode Island's lone veto of such a tariff by Congress had kept one from being implemented.)Rhode Island's government had just recently (1786) been taken over by the "Country Party". This "populist" group, devoted to the concerns of the state's debtors & farmers, had used the heavy printing of paper currency to help their constituency. (Hard currency & low inflation helps creditors; soft money and high inflation generally helps creditors.)Such struggles were, in fact, going on in several states (Shays' Rebellion in Massachusetts was one example), and concern over them was a significant factor prompting leaders (many of them also investors) to push for a Constitutional Convention by which they might strengthen the central government, giving it powers to limit these excesses in the individual states (and the ability of local groups to agitate for them), including the ability to print their own money.
