Constitution Day Celebration 2011
The Florida Historic Capitol Museum hosted a Constitution Day event on Thursday, September 15th to celebrate the 224th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Co-sponsored by the James Madison Institute, this event featured reenactment performers portraying some of the leading voices in American and Florida history, including Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, James and Dolley Madison and former Florida Governor William Sherman Jennings. Also appearing at the Celebration were the winners of the 2011 Florida History Fair who shared their rendition of the Lincoln-Douglas Debate.
The Florida Knowledge Network produced a video of the Constitution Day Celebration and the link below will provide you with temporary access to videos of these performances, and to related resources. The Department of Education is pleased to host these in time for classroom use during Celebrate Freedom Week – the last week in September.
These videos are also available now on Florida iTunes U. (Requires iTunes software installation)
