Geocache Description:

Park and grab out in the county.  . 


Constitution Day is an American federal observance that commemorates the adoption of the Constitution of the United States.  This day is observed  each year on September 17, which is the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.

This holiday dates all the way back to 1911 where schools in Iowa first recognized Constitution Day.  The Sons of the American Revolution formed a committee to promote Constitution Day in 1917.  Calvin Coolidge, John D. Rockefeller and General John Pershing were part of that committee.

In 1940, “I am an American Day” was created and named as an official day by President Roosevelt.  At this time, Congress named the third Sunday in May as the day to celebrate.  By 1949, the governors of all 48 states had issued Constitution Day proclamation.
