J.C. Bowman: The American Constitution, Sept. 17, 1787
On Sept. 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met to sign one of the greatest documents ever created, the United States Constitution. In 2004, the late Sen. Robert Byrd led the effort to rename the day “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day,” which requires public schools and institutions to provide information on the history of the country’s constitution. Our Founding Fathers would likely be pleased that the document they signed 231 years ago still provides inspiration and guidance for American citizens and other countries around the world.
