Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always held on September 17
The Constitutional Congress of the United States of America held it's final meeting on September 17, 1787. Do you have any idea why? That's right! It was to sign the Constitution of the United States of America, a document for which they so painstakingly labored to create and perfect.
After the meeting there was still much to do. Individual states then had to meet and vote on it. The U.S. Constitution did not go into effect until two years later on March 4, 1789.
Today's Quote: "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is in adequate to the government of any other." - - President John Adams
