SKU: 30065 Categories: , Tag:


Proposed following the 1787 debate over the ratification of the Constitution, The United States Bill of Rights contains the first ten amendments, written to address the objections raised by Anti-Federalists. During his 1789 inauguration George Washington addressed the subject of amending the Constitution, urging legislators: “whilst you carefully avoid every alteration which might endanger the benefits of an united and effective government, or which ought to await the future lessons of experience; a reverence for the characteristic rights of freemen, and a regard for public harmony, will sufficiently influence your deliberations on the question, how far the former can be impregnably fortified or the latter be safely and advantageously promoted.”
