Please join us at the Robert H. Smith Center for the Constitution at James Madison’s Montpelier for an overview of why the Articles of Confederation were replaced by the U.S. Constitution. Discover why the Framers created the U.S. government as they did, and learn how the debates over the adoption of the Constitution raised issues that are debated to this day.

The cost for this program is $25 for members. The general public is asked to pay a $75 registration fee, which includes a complimentary Montpelier membership that will begin immediately upon registration (You must join as a Montpelier member before registering for the program).
