Constitution Week was established in 1955 during the administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower when the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution proposed to the legislature that a week be set aside to celebrate the US Constitution. Constitution Week will be observed September 17-23, 2019.
The Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787, in Constitution Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by 39 delegates of the Constitutional Convention. The Constitution has been amended 27 times and has over 4,000 words.
Check out the displays in the Logansport Public Library, Walton Tipton Township Public Library, and Royal Center Boone Township Public Library. All of the displays were prepared and presented by the Olde Towne Chapter of the NSDAR in Logansport.
On September 17 at 4 p.m., bells in churches across the nation will ring out the celebration of our freedom from English rule. Let’s join them and ring our church bells.
