In celebration of the 225th anniversary of the Bill of Rights in 2016, the National Archives presents a national initiative: Amending America. Written in 1789 and ratified on December 15, 1791, the original Bill of Rights, on permanent display in the National Archives Rotunda, is still closely connected to the biggest issues of today–and to each of our citizens. Through a series of exhibitions, programs, online resources, and more, Amending America explores how we continue to perfect our union through the lens of our historic records.
