Do you want to learn more about the Constitution?
The U.S. Constitution was signed in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787 and every year we commemorate that day. The Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis and Interpretation, (CONAN) commonly known as the Constitution Annotated includes analysis and interpretation of the Constitution with annotations and cases decided by the Supreme Court. For over 100 years, it was a series of books provided to members of Congress that provided analysis and interpretation of all provisions of the Constitution throughout history. In 2019, the Library of Congress launched an interactive website version of the Constitution Annotated. This new website brings the Constitution into the 21st century and makes it easier to use and understand for everyone. It provides links with historical context and background information for all the amendments, clauses, and provisions. It provides case law links to illustrate how the Constitution has been interpreted throughout history. This is a great resource for students and the public researching all aspects of the U.S. Constitution.
