Constitution Day on September 17

September 17 is Constitution Day, commemorating the formation and signing of the US Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787. It recognizes all who, born in the US or by naturalization, have become citizens. In 2004, under Senator Robert Byrd's urging, Congress changed the designation of this day to "Constitution Day and Citizenship Day." You can learn more about the US Constitution on the US National Archives website.
