The American Revolution was a radical event that redefined ideas of sovereignty, liberty, equality, representation, and power. It also recast how men and women related to each other within and outside of government. As its political expression, the Constitution was the revolutionary answer to an age-old antagonism in Western culture between power and liberty. ‘The revolutionary Constitution’ describes the processes involved in the drafting of the Constitution, its ratification, and the creation of the new national government structure, including the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Supreme Court. It outlines the key stages in the Constitution’s construction such as the Philadelphia Convention in 1787 and the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791.
