On September 17, 1787, the delegates at the Constitutional Convention, meeting at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, concluded their work and forwarded the Constitution to the states for ratification. The Constitution went into effect in June 1788, when New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify it. Congress recognized Constitution Day in 1952, and in 2004, Constitution Day was combined with Citizenship Day. Today, the federal observance on September 17 is known as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day.

Join us on Saturday, September 17, to celebrate our Constitution, the freedoms we enjoy and the knowledge we can pass along to the next generation.
