Image description: Today is Bill of Rights Day. On December 15, 1791, the United States adopted the Bill of Rights.
The First Federal Congress of the United States proposed twelve amendments to the Constitution. The first two were not ratified by the states. The rest of the amendments were ratified and became known as the Bill of Rights because they contained guarantees of essential rights and liberties omitted in the crafting of the Constitution.
