Background:  On September 17, 1787, 39 delegates from 12 states at the Constitutional Convention signed the United States Constitution in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After being ratified by the 13 original states, the Constitution became our country’s legal foundation on June 21, 1788. In 1956, Congress established Constitution Week and then in 2004 designated every September 17th as Constitution Day to give our founding document the recognition and respect that it deserves.
