This Day in History: September 17, 1787
Yesterday marked 227 years since 39 people gathered in a room and signed the United States Constitution, which is the supreme law of the United States of America. It is the oldest written national constitution still in force anywhere in the world. While it is not a "perfect" document, set your mind to the possibility of it not being set in place and by the way, vanquish the Bill of Rights at the same time.
