Creating a Legacy

The Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, and Bill of Rights are expressions of America's highest ideals of liberty. Yet these documents also reveal the compromises made by America's early leaders in order to forge a new union with "a unique government."

The issues and events explored here-separation of church and state, suffrage, equal rights, citizenship, the right to petition-demonstrate that despite the tremendous challenges the nation has faced, the founding documents are living instruments. They are the touchstones that have advanced the cause of justice in the centuries since they were written and still inspire Americans to form "a more perfect union."
