Bill of Rights
The Bill of Rights was ratified on December 16, 1791, and is the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution. It enumerates the fundamental & inalienable rights of man to Life, Liberty, property, and pursuit of Happiness, due process, and the limits of federal power. The Bill of Rights was a comprise of the Federalists to the anti-Federalist who clamored for it. The anti-Federalists would endorse the U.S.
Constitution if and only if a Bill of Rights would be appended to the Constitution as law. This act of bipartisanship and cooperation ensured the ratification of both the Bill of Rights and the Constitution as well.
