THE 10 AMENDMENTS OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS
In the Fifth Amendment, all Americans are guaranteed the right to a fair and legal trial. It also protects someone from testifying against him- or herself under oath.
A right to a speedy trial is guaranteed in the Sixth Amendment.
The Seventh Amendment guarantees the right to a trial by jury in civil, or private, legal cases where damages are more than $20. Civil cases solve disputes between citizens.
Unreasonable bail or fines and cruel and unusual punishment are prohibited in the Eighth Amendment.
The Ninth Amendment recognizes that Americans have rights that are not listed in the Constitution.
The Tenth Amendment says that the powers not given to the United States government by the Constitution belong to the states or to the people.

The Constitution states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
It states in the Constitution that,
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
The Constitution states that, "No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
The Constitution states that, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
The Constitution states, "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
The Constitution says that, "In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense."
The Constitution says, "In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law."
The Constitution says, "Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted."
The Constitution says, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

New Jersey and Pensylvania soon followed that month, and Connecticut and Georgia approved in January 1788.
Massachussets approved in Feburary, Maryland in April, South Carolina in May, New Hampshire and Virginia in June, New York in July.
North Carolina approved the U.S. Constitution in November 1789, and Rhode Island was last in May of 1790.
Federalists were people who agreed with the idea of the Constitution, while Anti-Federalists did not agree.
Federalists wanted a strong national government, but since the Bill Of Rights was not added to the Constitution yet, Anti-Federalists feared that this form of government would have too much power. The Bill Of Rights helped to change many people's minds.
