Government Restricted

Today in History, September 25, 1789:

The US Congress approves the first ten ammendments to the Constitution, or The Bill of Rights.

The ammendments were more about restricting the powers of government than “bestowing” rights the founders considered natural.

The Bill of Rights would be ratified by the states in December, 1791.
