One of the best items to be posted in honor of Constitution Day 2015 (September 17) was an ABA Journal news article, "10 Misconceptions About the Constitution." If you think you know a lot about the drafting and significance of the U.S. Constitution, think again. This compendium of interesting and surprising Constitution facts was compiled by Robert J. McWhirter, author of the recently published book, Bills, Quills, and Stills: An Annotated, Illustrated, and Illuminated History of the Bill of Rights.(Yes, we have a copy in the Law Library.) Even if you were aware of some of these lesser-known facts, you'll find the Constitution Quiz at the end of the article to be quite a challenge. Take a break from studying and give it a try.
