David Stewart talks about his book, The Summer of 1787: The Men Who Invented the Constitution. He describes the experiences of the men who took part in the drafting of the U.S. Constitution and the difficulties they faced. He says he attempted to use the words of the delegates wherever possible, including letters and other writings before, during and after the Philadelphia convention. He included information about relatively unknown delegates such as John Rutledge who was a defender of slavery, James Wilson, and Abraham Baldwin. He talks about the Pennsylvania, Virginia, and South Carolina delegations, the three delegations he feels had the greatest impact. He also notes that there was tremendous conflict at the convention over slavery.
