Constitution Day

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The above is the preamble of the United States Constitution. Today September 17th is Constitution day. If we celebrate freedom on July 4th why is it not til September that we celebrate constitution day?? Because in those days and times travel was not by airplane or electronically or even vehicle of any sort. It was a lot slower and the final signing of the U.S. Constitution did not occur until September 17, 1787
