Constitution Day / Constitution Week
On this day in 1787, the U.S. Constitution Convention adopted the Constitution, which established and outlined the three branches of the federal government.

Also known as Constitution Day, this holiday was established by a Congressional Act in 2004. The Constitution has been amended twenty-seven times since then, including the Bill of Rights, which were the first ten amendments.
