Summary:
Learn what makes the Bill of Rights so important to America!

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America...

That preface begins the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to The Constitution of the United States.

When the Constitution was written, certain framers, powerful political leaders of their day, like Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry, insisted on adding basic legal protections to ensure individual rights. As a consequence the first ten amendments were added to clarify the rights of the citizens of the United States of America

These are essential human rights, granted to all of us, that we should know and understand. In this video they are laid out in very easy-to-understand language, with comments from noted American Political Science experts from major universities who help interpret the language of this essential document.

In addition, this video includes all the subsequent amendments made to the Constitution of the United States through to the present. These include such important national issues as slavery, prohibition, and the extension of voting rights to all citizens.

This video is essential viewing for any student of American History, and anyone interested in understanding our national heritage and basic rights as citizens.
