About Citizenship Day
Also known as Constitution Day, Citizenship Day is celebrated every year in the United States on September 17. Citizenship Day is celebrated on this day because it marks the day the United States Constitution was officially ratified by the Constitutional Convention, which was declared to be a unanimous agreement, but in reality, only thirty-nine of the forty-two delegates gave their signatures. While it was agreed that the legislature of the United States would have two houses, the initial Virginia Plan called for proportional representation for each state in both houses of congress, rather than representation based on population. The New Jersey Plan would instead recommend one house of congress where each state had two to seven representatives, but each state only had one vote. Ultimately, the Connecticut Compromise, also called the Great Compromise, took bits from both plans and created the House of Representatives and the United States Senate. Citizenship Day is taught on September 17 or the nearest school day when September 17 falls on a weekend at any school that receiving federal funding. Citizenship Day is also observed by the hanging of American flags, but is not a federal holiday.
