It has only been ten years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the thirteen independent states are falling apart. Jealousy and trade issues are fracturing united, yet independent states and the sacrifice of the Revolution is appearing to have been vain. Yet, there are some former patriots who are not willing to give up yet. Seen through the eyes of George Washington (played by Michael McGuire), Benjamin Franklin (played by Fredd Wayne), Alexander Hamilton (played by Derryl Yeager) and James Madison (played by Craig Wasson), A More Perfect Union tells the story of the creation of the U.S. Constitution.
A Document To Build A Nation
Ten years have passed since that fateful July day in 1776. Many events have transpired, many lives have been lost, many changes have come to the thirteen independent states, for they are no longer colonies. Emerging victorious from their Revolution, the American Colonies loosely organized themselves under a document called the Articles of Confederation. And it seemed to work. For a time. Now, ten years later, the American States are seemingly sabotaged from inside and from outside. Bickering, jealousy, and struggling unity marks the delicate relationship between these thirteen American States. England weaves a tangle of unfair trade regulations and tariffs against the new nation, threatening their already weak economic status. It seems the Revolution did not bring the stability the thirteen colonies were looking for. In the middle of the chaos of handful of brilliant men set out with a vision to build A More Perfect Union. Recognizing the Articles of the Confederation will not be enough to unify the thirteen states, they set about to write a new document to govern and unite the states into a strong, independent nation. But first it must be penned, and then they must convince the rest of their few but opinionated fellow citizens that this document will indeed form A More Perfect Union. Journey through time and become an eyewitness to the events and men that shaped the creation of the U.S. Constitution.
