ELIZABETHTOWN — You might think that the average fourth grader doesn’t know the U.S. Constitution from the Declaration of Independence, but not at Bladen Lakes Primary School.

Fourth-grade students were treated to an interactive presentation by Bill Rudin, a second-grade teacher and professional colonial reenactor. Students learned that, on Sept. 17, 1787, a total of 39 brave men signed the constitution and, together with the Bill of Rights, serve as the foundational documents for our rules and laws today.


Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is observed on Sept. 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.
