The Magna Carta established the principal that no one is above the law. Written 800 years ago by 13th century barons trying to protect their rights and property from a tyrannical king, the American colonists inserted those same rights into the laws of their states and later into the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Use this feature, or any of our archived Constitution features, to celebrate Constitution Day on Sept. 17. To download, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: magna for the Magna Carta or download code: constitution for any of MPA's Constitution features.
