This week is Constitution Week! Each state had to ratify the Constitution to be part of the United States of America. The Constitution provided that the Constitution would become the law of the land when in states had ratified it. This happened in 1788.  It wasn’t until 1791 that all 13 of the original states ratified. Many of the states didn’t ratify immediately because they felt like the rights of citizens needed to be included. Today there are 50 stars on the flag, one for each state. A state just needs to check a list of when each state joined the Union to know which star on the flag is theirs. And those rights that kept states from ratifying are found in the Bill of Rights today.
