Celebrating Constitution Day and Citizenship Day in the United States

Celebrating Constitution Day and Citizenship Day in the United States

 

Each year in the United States we celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. This is a federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. We celebrate each year on Sept. 17, as this was the day the Founding Fathers signed the Constitution in Philadelphia in 1787. 

The origin of this day is said to date back to 1911 when several Iowa schools first celebrated Constitution Day. Constitution Day received its first national recognition with help from a committee known as “The Sons of the American Revolution,” formed to promote the Constitution. The committee included well-known figures such as Calvin Coolidge, John D. Rockefeller and General John Pershing.
