America’s founding documents – the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – are the cornerstones of what makes our nation like no other in human history. Our Constitution sets forth the laws of the land from which all other laws, statutes and court rulings arise, and established the three branches of government – judiciary, legislative and executive – as our system of government – a Constitutional Republic. The Constitution was created on Sept 17, 1787, ratified on June 21, 1788, and became effective on March 4, 1789.
