Annapolis Convention convenes constitutional debate.

  • Annapolis, Maryland

Organized to address the issues with the Articles of Confederation, on September 11, 1786, the Annapolis Convention was created in Annapolis, Maryland.  Unfortunately, only 5 of the 13 American colonies were present, and the representatives did not feel a unanimous decision could be made.  Among the main issues discussed were the barriers of trade and commerce between the largely independent colonies.  The commission prepared a document for the U.S. Congress petitioning a more formal meeting with more attendance from the colonies.
