Why is our constitution called "a bundle of compromises?"
On May 25, 1787, fifty-five delegates from twelve states met in Philadelphia to revise the Articles of Confederation.

There were many compromises made at the Constitutional Convention, such as representation, slavery, and laws concerning foreign/ interstate imports and exports.
