The Constitution: Rules for Running a Country

Oh, Yeah... One More Thing

Article VII was the end of the Constitution… but it isn’t the end of the rules! Why? Because stuff has been added to the Constitution since then.

In fact, one set of rules was added almost immediately after the Constitution took effect. Back then, a lot of people disapproved of the Constitution because they thought something was missing: a guarantee of individual rights.

The first ten amendments to the Constitution are called the Bill of Rights. They guarantee citizens certain protections against the government.
