America's Constitutors

Below is a list of America's Constitutors which includes national figures from 1774 to 1790. There are six assemblages which include the First and Second Continental Congresses, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the United States in Congress Assembled (known as the Congress of the Confederation), the Philadelphia Convention (known as the Constitutional Convention), and the state ratifying conventions for the federal Constitution.

 

There is some information missing in regards to who participated in some of the state ratifying conventions, if you know where that missing information is please let us know by clicking the feedback button below.

In the future, we will add information about the Constitutors throughout all of American history including those who participated in ratifying each of the amendments to the Constitution. There are many delegates who played a role in politics besides the few Founders that everyone knows of.

"First CC" means first continental congress; "Second CC" means second continental congress; "DI" means Declaration of Independence; "USCA" means United States in Congress Assembled; "PC" means Philadelphia Convention and if there is an * next to the word "participated" then that means they did not sign the constitution; & "SRC" means state ratifying convention and there are five states that I do not have the full list of members.
