        I found at least a portion of it online in the form of a PDF.

          Shay's Rebellion is the key historical event that supports your argument.  It spanned 1786-1787 so it was very recent as the Constitution was written.  So much history gets revised that no one knows the truth about events long ago.  The truth can be recovered from documents that show what people said and did at the time.
