Sign Your Constitution Monday, September 17

11 am-4 pm Pedestrian Walkway, near Hodges Library

Celebrate the 220th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution by signing it yourself!

On September 17, 1787, members of the Constitutional Convention signed the final draft of the Constitution. Two days earlier, when a final vote was called, Edmund Randolph called for another convention to carefully review the Constitution as it stood. This motion, supported by George Mason and Elbridge Gerry, was voted down and the Constitution was adopted.

The product of four months of secret debate, the Constitution proposed an entirely new form of government. Take the opportunity today to sign the Constitution, and remember the foundations upon which our country was built.
