Happy Constitution Day!

The Constitution of the United States established America’s national government and fundamental laws. It also guaranteed certain basic rights for its citizens. At the 1787 Constitutional Convention, delegates from each state devised a plan for a stronger federal government with three branches—executive, legislative and judicial—along with a system of checks and balances to ensure no single branch would have too much power.
