Bill of Rights… the Ultimate Marketing Tool
  • The Framers realized that without at least a promise of a bill or rights, ratification would never happen

  • Big states were reluctant to ratify without the promise of the B.O.R
  • The Constitution was finally ratified on June 21, 1788
  • By 1790, all 13 states had ratified – thanks to the promise of a Bill of Rights!!!
  • James Madison, famed Federalist writer, drafted the new B.O.R, which went into effect in 1791
