On September 17, 1787, delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia signed the United States Constitution. This important document established our national government and fundamental laws, and has protected and guaranteed certain basic rights to citizens of these great United States. On February 29, 1952, the US Congress designated September 17 as “Citizenship Day.” On August 2, 1956, Congress requested that the President of the United States proclaim the week beginning September 17 and ending September 23 of each year as “Constitution Week.” And so it continues! Thursday, September 17-Wednesday, September 23, 2020 is Constitution Week. Brush up on your knowledge with these books.
