Best Answer

The U.S. Federal Constitution was written mostly by James Madison. But others helped Madison draft and finalize the Constitution to what we know today, such as William Paterson and Roger Sherman who helped define the legislative branch of the U.S. government. Also, the Bill of Rights was written by Madison, and other great statesmen throughout history have written the twenty-seven amendments that helped shape the Elastic Clause over two hundred years in the making. But the Constitution was literally written by penman Jacob Shallus who wrote everything down conjured up by Madison, Sherman, and Paterson.
