“The [Constitutional Convention] delegates agreed that the Constitution would become law once it was ratified by nine states. New Hampshire became the 9th state to ratify the Constitution on June 21, 1788. On December 15, 1791, a Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution (its first ten amendments). Today, the United States Constitution is the oldest written constitution. It currently has a preamble, seven articles (which describe Congress and its functions) and 27 amendments.” Click on any of articles, amendments or framers (listed in the horizontal menu) for more.
