Happy Constitution Day

220 years ago today, on September 17th, 1787, the Constitution of the United States - the supreme law of this country - was adopted by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Although it could be said that the Constitution was only really "enacted" after nine states agreed to ratify it (New Hampshire became that ninth state in late June 1788), today is by and large considered to be the Constitution's "birthday".

If you would like to read the Constitution (and you really should), here is the full text - including subsequent amendments - hosted by the National Constitution Center.
