The toils of the Constitution
Date posted: September 17, 2013
This Sept. 17, 2013, marks the 226th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution.
In honor of this special anniversary, the Sheridan Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution would like to encourage everyone to take time to once again read the Constitution, take time to study it and discuss it with others.
Many noble men, women and children sacrificed their lives, liberties and fortunes to establish this great nation over 200 years ago.
Take time to visit the displays on the Constitution in our public libraries.
Take some time to learn about some of the men who signed the Constitution.
One of the Sheridan Chapter DAR members, Peggy Terry, has a patriot ancestor who was one of the signers.
His name is Jacob Broom.
Maybe you have an ancestor who signed it too.
