It is Constitution Day.... what the devil...??? OK, so it was on September 17, -- 1787 -- (doin the math. . .that 222 years ago!)
Constitution Day represents the day that forty-two out of 55 (white men called delegates) persons meeting at the Constitutional Convention (in Philadelphia, PA) since May -- they gathered for a final meeting -- to sign the Constitution of the United States of America! This new document was designed to clearly define and separate the powers of the central government, the powers of the states, the rights of the people and how the representatives of the people should be elected.
