Annotated Constitution and Amendments

This is the top page of the section where I will begin to post annotated versions of the Constitution and its Amendments.  The original documents were copied from the National Archives.  All text was left alone, other than to format the characters and spacing to make it more readable.  Not a single character was added, replaced, or deleted.  However, this is an annotated copy, showing which sections were affected by amendments by way of differently colored and/or strikethrough characters  Also, there will be links provided to posts where discussions have been started on the displayed text.

This is a work in progress.  I will copy a small section, add notes, and publish the work as I complete each section.  Depending on the amount of free time I have, this could take a while.  I am highly motivated as I write this, so I have ambitious goals, but let’s just see what the near future brings.

As with the original text versions, I intend to publish it on three pages: one for the original Constitution, one for the first ten amendments (the Bill of Rights), and one for the last seventeen amendments.  If you are returning to any of these pages, depending on your browser settings, you may have to reload a page and/or clear your browser’s cache to make sure you are viewing the most recent version of any given page.

So, without further ado, I will take leave and get to work!
