What's Constitution Day?

U.S. ConstitutionOn September, 17, 1787, the delegates of the Constitutional Convention signed the U.S. Constitution.

In 1956, Congress established Constitution Week, which begins on September 17th of each year. In 2004, September 17th was designated as Constitution Day—a day to learn about the U.S. Constitution and develop a better understanding of the documents behind the creation of the U.S. government.
