ECPI Charleston celebrates Constitution Day September 17, 2007

Have you submitted your Constitution Day Crossword Puzzle to the Library yet?

To commemorate Constitution Day, instructors will be handing out information to their classes including a crossword puzzle that can be submitted to the Library to win a nice prize. There is a copy of the Constitution in the Library along with a Constitution Day display board.

What is Constitution Day? On September 17, 1787, the Constitutional Convention, meeting in Philadelphia for four months, agreed on the final draft of this special, inspired document and submitted it to several states for ratification. It was ratified June 21, 1788, when New Hampshire approved it as the ninth state. Congress, acting under the Articles of Confederation, declared the Constitution the law of the land on March 4, 1789.

By general assent and resolution of the Congress, September 17 has been designated as Constitution Day ever since.
