We the People are the words that stand out from the entirety of the document we know as the United States Constitution. These words reflect a united population that is in charge of its own government. The Constitution is the supreme law of the United States. It was drafted in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787. George Washington presided over the Constitutional Convention, but James Madison is considered the "Father of the Constitution" because of his preeminent contributions to the document.
The National Archives, located in Washington, DC, safeguards the nation's most important and treasured documents from all three branches of the Federal Government. The Charters of Freedom, composed of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, are considered the foundation of American society.

Kentucky resident Posy Lough has been translating America and American history into counted cross stitch kits for more than two decades. Her projects have taken her across the country — from New England to the Deep South and into the Great Midwest, Southwest and Far West. Her kits depict the homes of our presidents, our historic sites, our gardens and farms, and our natural wonders. Each project has an underlying theme relating to our American heritage.
