Celebrate Constitution Day – September 17, 2010!

The signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787 is one of the most important and influential events in American history, establishing the many rights and freedoms “We the People” enjoy today. On Constitution Day, Friday, September 17, 2010, the National Constitution Center  – located only steps away from Independence Hall, where the signing took place  – will celebrate the 223rd anniversary of this remarkable day in history with a wide array of inspiring and educational activities both on location and online.
