WHEN: Submitted to the states for ratification on September 25, 1789, and adopted on December 15, 1791.
WHAT: Bill of Rights
WHY: The First Amendment was written because at America's inception, citizens demanded a guarantee of their basic freedoms. After 1787 Constitutional Convention, Anti-Federalist complained that the new Constitution had no Bill of Rights
HOW: Thomas Jefferson was pleased with the constitution, but felt it was incomplete. He pushed for legislation that would guarantee individual rights, including what he felt was the prime guarantee: freedom of and from religion. Madison promised to promote such a bill, in order to gain support for the ratification of the constitution by the State of Virginia. In 1789, the first of ten amendments were written to the constitution; they have since been known as the Bill of Rights.

-It allows people to worship the god of their choice.
-By allowing this freedom, it also keeps religion out of government.
