"Amending America" is on display in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery of the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC, from March 11, 2016 through September 4, 2017. To visit: www.archives.gov/amending-america/visit/ How we amend our Constitution is presented in an animated video, made in collaboration with HISTORY. The animation shows the story of how we amend, through the proposal and ratification process. It also illustrates why our Founders made it possible to amend, through Article V of our Constitution. Featuring more than 50 original documents from the National Archives, this exhibit highlights the remarkably American story of how we have amended, or attempted to amend, the Constitution in order to form “a more perfect union.” 2016 marks the 225th anniversary of the Bill of Rights, written in 1789 and ratified on December 15, 1791. The original Bill of Rights, on permanent display in the National Archives Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom, is still closely connected to the biggest issues of today--and to each of our citizens. Amending America is presented in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of AT&T, HISTORY®, and the Lawrence F. O'Brien Family.
