“A Patriotic Fact from the Flag Lady’s Flag Store.
There were 55 delegates who met in Philadelphia to write the laws that govern our land. The Average age was 44 the oldest was Benjamin Franklin at 81 and the youngest was 26 [Jonathon Dayton, New Jersey]. The United States Constitution was passed on September 17, 1787.
WE THE PEOPLE were the first three words.
After our Constitution was signed a lady asked Benjamin Franklin, What have you given us?
He replied: We’ve given you a republic, if you can keep it.
God Bless America!”
