Constitution Day, September 17

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It was completed on September 17, 1787 with its adoption by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and later ratified by the states at their various state conventions. It is the single thing that separates us from all other countries in the world.

The Daughters of The American Revolution in 1929 dedicated their Constitutional Hall (the largest concert hall in Washington, D.C) in tribute to the Constitution (hat-tip The Daily Flag News). In 1955, the DAR petitioned Congress to set aside the week of September 17-23 each year, to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
