The actual text of the Preamble, "We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union ... " and of much of the rest of the final draft is usually attributed to Gouverneur Morris. He's been called the 'Penman of the Constitution.'

The Constitution was written by several committees over the summer of 1787, but the committee most responsible for the final form we know today is the "Committee of Stile and Arrangement".

This Committee was tasked with getting all of the articles and clauses agreed to by the Convention and putting them into a logical order. On September 10, 1787, the Committee of Style set to work, and two days later, it presented the Convention with its final draft.

The members were Alexander Hamilton, William Johnson, Rufus King, James Madison, and Gouverneur Morris.
