The U.S. Constitution is the world's oldest written chart of government in continuous effect. Much of the success of this document can be attributed to the way the Constitution has changed to meet the needs of the American people. The framers of the Constitution wisely anticipated the need to make changes to the Constitution as the world itself changed. Since 1787 when the Constitution was written, thousands of proposed amendments have been introduced in Congress. Only 27 of those proposed amendments have been ratified. These amendments tell some of the most important stories in American political, social and cultural history. This presentation reveals an important chapter in the ongoing history of the U.S. Constitution.
