On September 17, 1787, delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia signed the United States Constitution. This document that established our national government and fundamental laws, was intended to protect and guarantee certain basic rights to our citizens.
“I confess that there are several parts of this Constitution which I do not at present approve, but I am not sure I shall never approve them. For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged by better information, or fuller consideration, to change opinions even on important subjects, which I once thought right, but found to be otherwise.”
— Benjamin Franklin, 1787
