U.S. Constitutional Convention Wasn't a Transparent Political Convention

Did you know that...
The Convention was assembled under false pretenses. (It was convened to amend the Articles of Confederation, not adopt a new document.)
All attendees took a vow of lifetime silence.
They held their meetings on the second floor: no eavesdroppers
The press was barred from attending.
The legislatures’ instructions were deliberately violated.
Imagine if such a political convention were held today?
