Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens.
There is no better story than the story of We the People.
That to form a more perfect union and secure the blessings of liberty, our forefathers will hereby put forth and ratify a constitution made for the people and by the people.
To mark the 223rd anniversary of its signing, Friday September 17th, the National Constitution Center celebrates Constitution Day, a day full of festivities honoring this sacred document that forever changed the course of history.
Through the generous donation of Beneficial Bank, the National Constitution Center will be offering free admission, so that all visitors may see, hear, and experience the story of the Constitution through more than 100 multimedia exhibits, films, photographs and the not to be missed theatrical performance, Freedom Rising.
Cake will of course be served, but the sweetest treat of all will be witnessing immigrants from across the globe taking the oath of citizenship and officially become citizens of the United States.
