Constitution Day

On this day in 1787 -- exactly 225 years ago -- the delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution of the United States.

This Constituion Day website has a number of interesting features, including brief biographies of the signers. The Bill of Rights Institute offers this resources page for Constitution Day.

Wikipedia, of course, traces the growth and development of Constitution Day (formerly Citizenship Day).

We asked our crack research staff what their favorite part of the Constitution was. The answer was unanimous -- the 21st Amendment.

It just figures, doesn't it?
