Abraham Baldwin’s draft copy of the United States Constitution is one of the national treasures of the Georgia Historical Society collection. One of only a few still in existence, the draft includes the handwritten margin notes of Baldwin, one of Georgia’s signers of the Constitution of 1787.

In celebration of Constitution Day and to kick off the 2016 Georgia History Festival, GHS invites you to experience this piece of American history firsthand! Stop by the GHS Research Center between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on September 17 for a self-guided tour featuring the first public showing of this unique document, along with educational displays and other one-of-a-kind materials that tell the story of Georgia’s role in the founding of our nation.
