Americans of late have taken to waving the Constitution in the air and proclaiming, ""The founders were on MY side! See, it's all right here!"" But these phantom constitutions bear little relation to the historical one. By entering the world of the Constitution's framers, and experiencing it one day after the next as they did, Ray Raphael helps us understand how and why they created the document they did.
