Constitution Day 2010

Constitution Day 2010



On September 17, 1787, the last of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution. Thanks to the dedication of a woman named Louise Leigh, every September 17th is now Constitution Day. Federally recognized in 2005, Constitution Day is dedicated to the study and awareness of this document that guides our nation. All schools receiving federal funds and all federal agencies are required to provide material and teach about the Constitution.

To honor this year's celebration of Constitution Day, Dr. William C. Lowe, one of Ashford University's esteemed deans, has written an essay on Article IV of the document which has been called "the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man" (William Gladstone, 1878). Happy Constitution Day, America!
