The Founding Documents of the United States of America:
The United States Code Annotated lists the four documents fundamental to the establishment of our American Republic.
In chronological order of their enactment they are:
● The Declaration of Independence, 1776
● The Articles of Confederation, 1781
● The Northwest Ordinance, 1787
● The United States Constitution, 1789.
These documents are public domain. They belong to you, the American people. Cherish them, study them, understand them, teach them to your children, and defend them against all who aspire to rule over you while ignoring or perverting their fundamental principles of liberty consistent with social decency.
Analysis and commentary on these documents is offered in the book We Hold these Truths, free for downloading on this website.
