Americans know how to celebrate.
Every New Year’s Eve close to 1 million people pack into New York’s Times Square to watch the ball drop and celebrate a fresh start. Every Fourth of July, Americans from every background gather with family and friends to celebrate our Independence. Right here in South Carolina, every Saturday in the fall is a celebration as we cheer on our favorite football team. Yes indeed, Americans love celebrations!
But have you every celebrated Constitution Day? On September 17, 1787, our American forefathers signed the most exceptional governing document in human history. It was a truly momentous occasion as thirty-nine Americans gave rise to the greatest test of whether or not men and women could truly govern themselves. We are still part of that great experiment!
William Gladstone, former Prime Minister of Britain remarked in 1878, over one hundred years later, that the Constitution was “the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man.” Surely this document deserves our celebration and healthy defense.
That is why we want you to join us to get a head start on celebrating Constitution Day on September 10, 2016 at the South Carolina State Museum. Come and join fellow South Carolinians as we hear from Rep. Joe Wilson, Rep. Mick Mulvaney, A.G. Alan Wilson and nationally-recognized Constitutional scholar Arthur Milikh on the vital importance – and relevance – of America’s pre-eminent legal document.
