Although it isn't celebrated as a major holiday in the United States like the 4th of July, this Saturday marks the anniversary of one of the biggest events in our nation's history.
September 17th is the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the United States Constitution.
The signatures were collected in 1787 in Philadelphia.
Today, Congressman Austin Scott's Aide, Stone Workman, toured the Miller-Motte Technical College campus and spoke with students about the importance of the constitution.
Scott is in Washington D.C.
Workman quizzed the students on historical facts of the constitution, and the United States in general, but admits he had to look a few of the answers up himself before he asked the questions.
Workman also explained to the students that the constitution is important to everyone in the United States, because it allows them the right to things like free speech, and to ask questions and challenge elected officials.
"A lot of people have forgotten the miracle our constitution is. That it can be written so long ago, and we only changed it 27 times in its whole 200-some year history," Workman says.
