Join “Amending America” Curators Christine Blackerby and Jennifer Johnson of the National Archives for a Tumblr #AnswerTime!
Only 27 times—out of more than 11,000 proposals—have Americans reached consensus to amend the Constitution. “Amending America” marks the 225th Anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights and highlights the remarkably American story of how we have amended, or attempted to amend, the Constitution in order to form “a more perfect union.”
