Synopsis >

America's leaders meet at a convention in Philadelphia and decide to write a radical new Constitution. Ben Franklin, in his final moment on the world stage, helps forge the Great Compromise on legislative representation. James Madison writes much of the Constitution, the lawful embodiment of the promise of the Revolution. It includes the odious compromise on slavery that maintains the practice's legality in the United States.
