Most Americans know that our nation's birthday is celebrated on July 4th. Fewer Americans know that September 17th is the birthday of our government - the date, in 1787, on which delegates to the Philadelphia Convention completed and signed the U.S. Constitutuion.
Constitution Day is intended to celebrate not only the birthday of our government, but the ideas that make us Americans. These include: commitments to the rule of law, limited government, and the ideals of equality, liberty, and justice. These are embodied in the Constitution, the oldest written constitution of any nation on Earth.
