September 17th is Constitution Day, and we here at HSLDA want you to know that we are committed to the constitutional education of Americans.
227 years ago, on September 17th, the Constitution of the United States of America was signed by 38 of the 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. However, it was subsequently agreed that government under the U.S. Constitution would not begin until March 4, 1789. And on May 29, 1790, Rhode Island voted by only two votes to ratify the document, and the last of the original 13 colonies joined the United States. Today, the U.S. Constitution is the oldest written constitution in operation worldwide.
In honor of our nation’s founding document, and in honor of liberty and freedom, we’re giving away one copy of ConLit DVD and one copy of Our Constitution Rocks! here on the blog! AND there is also a fantastic sale over at the HSLDA Store from the 17-18 of 40% off all Constitution items!
Constitutional Literacy with Michael Farris (Second Edition) is a 25 episode DVD set that delves into the history of our nation’s most important document and provides the training to turn America back towards a proper understanding of American Liberty.
These items are sold in the HSLDA Store, along with other fantastic resources for you and your children!
