From the ConSource "About" page:
The mission of The Constitutional Sources Project is to increase
understanding, facilitate research, and encourage discussion of the U.S.
Constitution by connecting individuals — including students, teachers,
lawyers and judges — with the documentary history of its creation,
ratification, and amendment.
The countless letters, speeches, and journals of the Framers and later
Amenders of the Constitution are housed in hundreds of libraries,
archives, and private collections throughout the United States and
Europe. These documents together embody the “best” history of our
Constitution and its amendment over time. Yet many of these documents
are virtually inaccessible to most of us, whether a fourth grader or a
Supreme Court Justice. Even diligent researchers cannot gain access to
all of them. As a result, far too many Americans lack an understanding
of the ideas that influenced the Framers, many of which still lie at the
root of current conversations and debates concerning our government and
To address this lack of access, ConSource.org is building the preeminent
online resource for constitutional research and education. Continually
expanding in scope, it provides free public access to what is fast becoming the world’s most comprehensive online library of source documents related to the U.S. Constitution.
