This article examines the North Carolina delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, which produced the United States Constitution and their experiences during the drafting process. It also examines in great detail the Hillsborough Convention of 1788 where North Carolina refused to ratify the Federal Constitution and the Fayetteville Convention of 1789 where the Constitution was finally ratified.
This article discusses Convention of 1835, which met in Raleigh on June 4, 1835 and is considered one of the great events in the history of North Carolina. During the Convention, delegates reformed North Carolina's state constitution to more fairly appropriate seats in the General Assembly, allowed more Christians to hold public office, and restructured the state government.
