“Went up... in the vicinity of Valley Forge to get trout.” – George Washington
July 26, 1787
Delegate John Rutledge of South Carolina chaired the Committee of Detail. They took the points upon which all the delegates had finally agreed, and together the committee members wrote the first draft of the Constitution.
While members of the committee were at work, other delegates took a break; George Washington went fishing.
