This day was signed into practice by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on December 15, 1941, one hundred and fifty years after the actual signing of the Bill of Rights by our forefathers. Ironically, he proclaimed the holiday just one week after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor initiating the United States' involvement in World War II where freedom issues were at the core of wartime dogma.
While the U.S. Constitution was written in 1787, it wasn't until 1791 that the ten Bill of Rights were ratified by the Colonies. The Bill of Rights was introduced by James Madison to the First United States Congress.
The ten Bill of Rights are summarized as:
1) Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Right to Peaceably Assemble, Petition Government for redress of grievance
2) The right to bear arms
3) Consent to house soldiers
4) No unreasonable searches or seizures
5) No self incrimination, due process
6) Jury trial for all, public defense
7) In common law, right of jury trial
8) No excessive bail or cruel and unusual punishment
9) Constitution cannot deny rights of others
10) Governmental power default to the states
