As a member of the New York State Ratification Convention, your task is to deliberate and debate the merits of the proposed Constitution.  You will be assigned the role of EITHER a Federalist OR Anti-Federalist and your task is to convince your fellow delegates to support your position.  At the end of the Convention debate, you will vote on whether or not to ratify the Constitution.  After the Convention, you will write a “Letter-to-the-Editor” in defense of your vote.
