Bill of Rights

Democracy is a messy business.  The Founders' revision of the Bill of Rights (above) shows the debate and consensus necessary to create one of the charters of freedom.  The NHPRC is pleased to announce a $2 million cooperative agreement with The University of Virginia (UVA) Press to make freely available online the annotated historical documents of the Founders of the United States of America. Read the Announcement.
