Constitution Day ~ 220 Years Strong

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The Constitution

of the United States of America

Signed into law September, 17, 1787

For 220 years the Constitution has been the governing law for our country.

55 delegates from 12 states signed the Constitution.

Our founding fathers gave us a brilliant foundation.

Fireworks erupt on the Fourth of July, but this is the day that made us a country!


The Department of Defense has a great mini course on the Constitution -

you can even print out a certificate of completion if you want to!

Constitution Day would not be complete without a remembrance of my Grandfather.
He is the one who taught me to love our magnificent country. It is also his birthday.
