Some states, such as Delaware and Georgia, quickly and unanimously ratified. Other states, such as Virginia and New York, agonized.

Indeed, Rhode Island would not approve the Constitution until economic sanctions had been imposed against her.
The Constitution was a controversial document, which was passionately debated by the best minds in the land.
