John Clarke DAR Celebrates our U.S. Constitution

The Constitution is a living document that assures each citizen of the freedoms Americans cherish and appreciate.

Constitution Week is September 17-23, 2018. In 1955, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution petitioned Congress with a resolution; this week of observance for the foundation of the American form of government was signed into law by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on August 2, 1956.
George W. Bush officially declared the inception of Constitution Week in 2002. The commitment of the NSDAR is to encourage study and educate the public about the Constitution, which was adopted by the American Congress of the Confederation on September 17, 1787.
