As the main event of the famed Philadelphia Constitutional Convention, on September 17, 1787, the formal U.S. Constitution was signed. Part of the Federal Convention, the document was signed, a great alteration of the previous Articles of Confederation that were previously recognized. Following completion, the convention submitted the Constitution to the Congress of the Confederation, with the government enacting its principles just years later in 1789. The preparers recognized several philosophical influences, with many of the articles being new principles for the American people.
