dc.description.abstract This composition offers a description of the newest amendment to our Constitution within the context of the evolution of the entire document. A brief discussion of the 1787 Constitutional Convention is followed by an account of the origin of the Bill of Rights. A subsequent section offers a brief synopsis of the development of each amendment from the Eleventh to the Twenty-sixth. An explanation is then given of the political processes involved in amending the Constitution. The discourse concludes with a detailed focus on the development of the Twenty-seventh Amendment, beginning with its conception during the birth of the Bill of Rights, to its ratification 203 years later in 1992.
