September 17, 1787
As an institution, the Senate can claim several starting dates. In 1987, senators and representatives traveled to Philadelphia to commemorate one of them—July 16. On July 16, 1787, the Constitution's framers arrived at the so-called "Great Compromise," which provided that states would be represented equally in the Senate and in proportion to their populations in the House. Without that compromise, there would likely have been no Constitution, no Senate, and no United States as we know it today.
The framers of the U.S. Constitution, meeting at Independence Hall, had reached a supremely important agreement. Their so-called Great Compromise (or Connecticut Compromise in honor of its architects, Connecticut delegates Roger Sherman and Oliver Ellsworth) provided a dual system of congressional representation. In the House of Representatives each state would be assigned a number of seats in proportion to its population. In the Senate, all states would have the same number of seats. Today, we take this arrangement for granted; in the wilting-hot summer of 1787, it was a new idea.
