The Constitution of the United States
Lynne Cheney, author, scholar and wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, celebrated the signing of the U.S. Constitution at the National Constitution Center on September 17. This year Mrs. Cheney and students from Philadelphia elementary schools commemorated Constitution Day just two blocks from Independence Hall, where the U.S. Constitution was signed 216 years ago. Students learned more about the Constitution and the founding fathers of our nation, including George Washington, Ben Franklin and other historical figures.
