Constitution Day

On September 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed by the members of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. September 17th is marked as Constitution Day to commemorate the signing of the constitution.

Senator Robert C. Byrd offered an amendment in December 2004, in an attempt to increase knowledge about the constitution. All institutions that receive federal funds are required to provide educational programs relating to the United States Constitution annually on September 17th.

Here are some great online resources about the US Constitution:
