Preamble:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.


On this date, 224 years ago New Hampshire became the nineth State to ratify our Constitution.  Nine of the Thirteen original States were the minimum required for the Constitution to be consider ‘ratified’ by the Nation.
