Founding Documents and Resources
The Founding documents are the true primary sources of America. These important documents, which include the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and others written between 1764 and 1791, along with additional resources that span American history, showcase the philosophical, traditional, and political foundations on which our nation was built and which continue to shape our free society.
