I was surprised at how tenuous of an experience it was to get passed. There were many times it almost failed.
Something else that I was amazed by was how men stood up and voted against what they personally wanted because it was the right thing to do for America. One example is the discussion about slavery. The man who suggested doing away with it within a certain period of time was a slave owner and relied on that labor for his lively hood. He was willing to put God and Country ahead of his own personal wants and needs.
It was amazing how many times divine providence, prayer, our maker, and statements like that were made. Such a stark difference from what we see today.
You could literally see the hand of God working over this gathering of men.
