September 17 is Constitution Day!

Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who, are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens. Constitution Day is observed every year on September 17th. On this day in 1787, 42 of the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention held their final meeting, and the only agenda on that day was to sign the Constitution of the United States of America!
