Jacob Shallus, a clerk for the Pennsylvania General Assembly in 1787, is credited for engrossing the Constitution of the United States. Shallus had just two days to complete the task. The Constitution also had been printed and distributed while Shallus transcribed the four-page document now on display in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom at the National Archives in Washington, DC.
