Did You Fail to Observe Constitution Day?

  • Washington State Archives

It was yesterday! But, it's not too late. According to the Washington Secretary of State's Office:

Our State Archives in Olympia is putting on a free display of the 1889 Washington Constitution this Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in its front lobby. Also on display will be the 1878 Washington Constitution that was ratified by Washington voters but not approved by Congress.

The location of both the renegade Constitution and the approved Constitution: 1129 Washington St. SE in Olympia, one block east of Capitol Way. Go. You'll be able to yell "It's in the Constitution!" with so much more confidence.

Mitt did. In his own way.

I tweeted and facebooked "Happy Constitution Day!" so I think I did not.

Never heard of Constitution Day. I'm always up for a daytrip, though.

Yesterday was also the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. I watched about 5 minutes of the LIVE C-SPAN broadcast of the battle on Sunday. Too much talking and it could have been shortened to a few hours not dragged out to 7 hours.

The free display of these documents is Wednesday. Are they available for viewing for a fee, and if so, where?
