"The constitutional convention at Philadelphia was the most remarkable gathering of all history. Each state sent its best timber, among them being future presidents, military leaders, statesmen with Washington heading the Virginia delegation. Here he was unanimously selected for president. Is Leader. '"The great leader 'held the new nation in sway, a nation which now was one of unity, composed of inseparable states, to grow in number with the call of the western states.
