Bill of Rights in Action
In convention, begun at the city of Detroit, on the second Monday of May, in the year one thousand eight hundred and thirty five:. Government is instituted for the protection, security, and benefit of the people; and they have the right at all times to alter or reform the same, and to abolish one form of government and establish another, whenever the public good requires it. Every person has a right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of his own conscience; and no person can of right be compelled to attend, erect, or support, against his will, any place of religious worship, or pay any tithes, taxes or other rates, for the support of any minister of the gospel or teacher of religion. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of religious societies, or theological or religious seminaries. The civil and religious rights, privileges and capacities of no individual shall be diminished or enlarged on account of his opinions or belief concerning matters of religion. Every person may freely speak, write, and publish his sentiments on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that right; and no law shall be passed to restrain or abridge the liberty of speech or of the press. In all prosecutions or indictments for libels, the truth may be given in evidence to the jury; and if it shall appear to the jury that the matter charged as libelous is true, and was published with good motives and for justifiable ends, the party shall be acquitted; and the jury shall have the right to determine the law and the fact.

The Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution, December 15, 1791
During the debates on the adoption of the Constitution , its opponents repeatedly charged that the document would open the way to tyranny by the strong central government. In September , the First Congress of the United States proposed 12 amendments to the Constitution, addressing the most frequent criticisms. Articles 3 through 12, which three-fourths of the states ratified on December 15, , constitute the first 10 amendments to the Constitution and are known as the Bill of Rights. The original second article, concerning the compensation of members of Congress, finally became law on May 7, The Bill of Rights also encompasses principles fundamental to the American legal system: the rights to due process of law, trial by jury, and protection from cruel and unusual punishment and self-incrimination.
In during the Constitutional Convention, tension rose out of the new addition to the Constitution. After the founders wrote the Constitution, they needed nine states to ratify it before it became law. George Mason, who was the author of Virginia Declaration of Rights, wanted the Constitution to include guarantees for fundamental liberties that reflect on the development of a new nation after the Revolutionary War.
Lesson 3: Bill of Rights. The Constitution established a strong national government and the rights of the states, but changes, or amendments, to the document.

Having fought a long war to protect these rights, were they then to sacrifice them to their own government?
