231 years ago, a group of men in a stuffy Philadelphia government building spent a stifling summer creating a four-page document that changed the world.
September 17 is Constitution Day, commemorating the signing of the United States Constitution in 1787.
In over two centuries, countries around the world have seen revolution, coups, turmoil and chaos in which governments and constitutions are remade, discarded and remade again.
Yet with only 27 changes, the same crinkly four pages of parchment have served as the basis of one of the most successful representative republics in history. It stands as one of our “holy trinity” of founding documents, including the Declaration of Independence and the United States Bill of Rights.
Join with the Wyoming Republican Party in recognizing this most important founding document, which has resulted in the most enduring freedom the world has ever seen. Happy Constitution Day, everyone!
