The U.S. Constitution was the product of the Constitutional Convention where debates were held and compromises were made in order to please those whose votes and influence mattered. There were 55 delegates, representing the 13 colonies, 39 of them signed it. James Madison is often called "the father of the Constitution," and Jacob Shallus was the clerk who physically penned the document.

The authors of the Constitution of the US. Gouverneur Morris of Pennsylvania was put in charge of the committee to draft the final copy of the Constitution. The other men who had much to do with writing the new Constitution included John Dickinson, Edmund Randolph, Roger Sherman, James Wilson, and George Wythe. Morris was given the task of putting all the convention's resolutions and decisions into polished form. Morris actually "wrote" the Constitution. The original copy of the document is preserved in the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C. Jacob Shallus, assistant clerk of the Pennsylvania State Assemble, was given the task of engrossing the Constitution prior to the signing of the document. His office was in the same building in which the Convention was held.
