Each year the United States celebrates Constitution Day, which commemorates the adoption of the U.S. Constitution. Created in 1956, the purpose of the celebration is to promote civics education and the study of the Constitution. This year the event will take place September 17, 2018, and marks the anniversary of the ratification of the Constitution from September 17, 1787.
