520    In 1783, as the Revolutionary War came to a close, 
       Alexander Hamilton resigned in disgust from the 
       Continental Congress after it refused to consider a 
       fundamental reform of the Articles of Confederation. Just 
       four years later, that same government collapsed, and 
       Congress grudgingly agreed to support the 1787 
       Philadelphia Constitutional Convention, which altered the 
       Articles beyond recognition. What occurred during this 
       remarkably brief interval to cause the Confederation to 
       lose public confidence and inspire Americans to replace it
       with a dramatically more flexible and powerful government?
       We Have Not a Government is the story of this contentious 
       moment in American history.
