Constitution Day September 17
On December 8, 2004, President George W. Bush signed a bill (Public Law 108-447) that designates every September 17 as Constitution Day. The date is significant because on September 17, 1787 the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the constitution they had created.
In recognition of Constitution Day, a collection of materials is on display in the reference area of the Miller Center Library. To learn more about the U.S. Constitution, visit http://constitutioncenter.org/constitution-day/.
