Use this interactive to see the creation of the Bill of Rights and ratification of the United States Constitution. Begin with Delaware, the first state to ratify, and follow links to view records of debates, a timeline, and a map of voting history in the state. Continue along the interactive to see the progression of ratification of the Bill of Rights through completion in 1791 with Virginia's approval providing the 2/3 majority required. The timeline continues through to Rhode Island's ratification of the constitution.
