In the 1600's the Parliament tried to force King Charles I to sign the "Petition of Rights." He said that God made him the king and he did not have to obey Parliament.

Parliament cut off his head and tried to run the country without him. It was a disaster so Parliament asked his son, Charles II to become king and he did.

After the U.S. Constitution was written some states refused to ratify it without a Bill of Rights. The Founding Fathers drew from the English Bill of Rights and included one in the Constitution. This document is what you are going to study in this unit.

 

The Bill of Rights
This document protects the citizens from the government

Thank you James Madison and the rest of the Founding Fathers
