What you know about the "Bill Of Rights"!

  • Congress passed 12 of Madison’s proposed amendments. The states only ratified 10 of them. One of the two rejected by the states concerned the number of constituents for each #Representative. The other limited when and how members of Congress are compensated. Neither was ratified at the time.

  • The latter of the two rejected amendments was ratified 203 years later. The 27th Amendment restricted compensation for members of Congress.

  • The Bill of Rights is displayed in #TheRotunda of the #NationalArchivesBuilding in #WashingtonDC.

  • There were 14 copies made; one for each of the 13 states to sign and one for the federal archives. Only 12 copies survive today.
