On this day in 1787 in Philadelphia, the Constitution for the united States of America was signed by delegates from twelve states (Rhode Island and Providence Plantations did not send any delegates). Written on four pages plus the transmittal page (finally on display at the National Archives), it is concise, straightforward, and easy to read by the common man. Read it today. Read it any day. Get a pocket Constitution and Declaration of Independence to keep it handy. Also get a copy of the Federalist Letters which is a compilation of newspaper articles written in defense of our Constitution (by founders John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison), as well as the Anti Federalist Letters which challenged it. Many in-depth study courses are available for those interested in exploring the nuances of this founding document. We suggest that you explore this as a family or group project with like-minded friends and neighbors. Make every day Constitution Day!
