Best Answer

At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, George Washington was chosen to preside over the proceedings. The convention was one of the greatest events in United States history, because the United States Constitution was created there. The convention had been called under the pretext of revising the Articles of Confederation, but it was determined that an entirely new and thorough document was needed.
