But also be aware that this day in history is also a celebration of all those who have come to the United States and become citizens. Today, we take part in our Constitution Day. We celebrate today to commemorate when delegates came together in Philadelphia at the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when they signed the US Constitution into action.
