The Bill of Rights

This The Bill of Rights video also includes:

While the Founding Fathers drafted the Constitution to preserve liberty, not everyone was on board. The dissenters refused to sign on unless the Constitutional Convention added a Bill of Rights. Viewers explore these important civil liberties—added after the Constitution was ratified—and their history using two videos and a series of discussion questions.
