Bill of Rights

www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bill_of_rights.html

The Bill of Rights – the first 10 amendments to the Constitution – were ratified on this date in 1791, and today is known as Bill of Rights Day. Bone up on your Constitution by checking out this website, which has an image of the original Bill of Rights, the text of the amendments, links to further information and much more.

(I wonder why the federal government does not make this as big a day of celebration as they do Constitution Day, Sept. 16.)
