The Right Bills

Including freedom of speech, religion and the press, the right to bear and keep arms, the right to peaceably assemble, protection from unreasonable search and seizure and the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury, James Madison Jr. was known as the ‘Father of the Constitution’.

In 1789, he submitted 19 new amendments to the Constitution, and in the same year congress adopted 12 for ratification (the ‘official’ way to confirm something’). 10 of them (including those above), were ratified and joined the constitution.

Cool, eh!?
