Celebrate Constitution Day with Ashbrook

September 17, 2012 is the 225th anniversary of the signing of our Constitution

September 17 marks the 225th anniversary of our nation’s founding document.

On this day in 1787, the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created. They sent it on to the people in the several states for ratification. September 17th has been called, ever since, Constitution Day.

There are many ways to celebrate and learn more about our Constitution:
