December 15th Bill of Rights Day

The Constitution was ratified on March 7th, 1789 and Congress instantly started work on Amendments to the Constitution finding 12 items they wished to change. The hard work got started on September 25th, 1789 but only 10 Amendments were actually put in place on December 15th, 1791. Of course we know about the right to bear arms and to practice what religion we choose, the freedom of the press and the freedom of assembly. These are important rights to know… so how many do you know? All ten? Do you know which two did not pass? Check them out… it’s your duty to know.

How to celebrate – Learn YOUR Bill of Rights. Learn how your government works. Learn how Amendments are added to the Constitution.
