Nonsequitur: Every Day Is Constitution Day

September 17, 2014

The U.S. Constitution was signed by 39 representatives on September 17, 1787, creating our government and recognizing our rights as citizens. Signatories included George Washington, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton.

Relatively few, though important, amendments have been made to this guiding and protecting document.  (These changes were considered and allowed by Article V of the Constitution.)  All citizens, whether by birth or naturalization, still benefit from these constitutional protections.
