4 Veteran Solider It is September, 1786; the war is over and yet you are facing new struggles. Your crops are poor and the state is taxing you heavily in order to pay the debts that developed during the years of fighting. The state is asking you to pay the taxes in gold or silver. In order to pay the taxes, you have borrowed money from wealthy merchants and bankers. Now because you can't pay the debt your property is being auctioned. For more information, click your state: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia.

5 Merchant You came to the colonies from Manchester England in 1770 because of the opportunity to make your fortune. After working hard stocking shelves in a general store and unloading ships at the pier, you were able to accumulate enough money to build and stock your own clothing store. Your fortunes grew until 1777 when the war began to discourage customers from spending their money. For more information, click your state: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia.

6 Tavern/Hotel/Land Owner In many ways, you are like the merchant; you came to the Colonies as a loyal British subject desiring a new start and an opportunity to make a fortune. After working in a variety of odd jobs you received a lucky break in The tavern/hotel /Land owner that you were working for became concerned with all of the talk of Revolution. Being a loyal British subject, he did not want to subject his family to taunts and persecution. He sold you the entire business for less than 10% of its value and returned with his family to London. You established your wealth in the next three years and when the shots were fired at Lexington and Concord you were a vocal Patriot. Throughout the war you refused to accommodate any British troops, merchants, or soldiers. Now you want to see the United States government succeed. For more information, click your state: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia.

7 Patriot You were quite vocal in your support for independence and revolution. You supported the Articles of Confederation because they gave the states the power to rule themselves. You did not trust King George; you never trusted Parliament; and you certainly do not want a new federal government which will be unsympathetic to the needs of the people within each state. For more information, click your state: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia.

8 Banker Your specialty is making and holding on to money. Your friend Ben Franklin always said, "A penny saved is a penny earned." You use his maxim to encourage citizens to save their pennies in your bank. You have loaned money to farmers, merchants, soldiers, and patriots for whom the war caused hardship. Now the loans must be repaid and you are being forced to auction the property of some of your closest friends. You think that part of the problem comes from the Articles of Confederation. The merchants have trouble with interstate trading and the government needs a central bank and a standard currency. You think that money may indeed be "... the root of all..." the problems facing the new government. For more information, click your state: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia.

9 Lawyer/Judges Throughout the revolution you were a loyal patriot. You stood by your country and now is your chance to shine. You have benefited from a legal education, though you may not rely on this profession for a livelihood, you are concerned with how the convention will impact your state.

During the convention you will be evaluating the constitution using your professional and personal standpoint in the community. For more information, click your state: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia.
