The mission of ConSource is to increase knowledge, facilitate research, and encourage discussion of the U.S. Constitution by providing free access to the documentary history of its creation, ratification and amendment, and by developing web-based tools that enable "We the People" to interact with Constitutional history.
The Constitutional Sources Project has created and is expanding the free and most comprehensive online library of primary sources related to the U.S. Constitution. This includes letters, journals, newspaper articles, and personal writings surrounding the creation, ratification and amendment of the Constitution. It currently holds 20,000 documents and will eventually contain millions, spanning from Antiquity to the year of its last Amendment 1992.
The library, accessible at www.ConSource.org, is a resource from the Supreme Court to the grade school classroom. In 2007, both parties in the Supreme Court landmark case, D.C. v Heller used the ConSource library when preparing their oral arguments. Now available are lesson plans based on documents in the ConSource library for teachers in eight states. ConSource is democratizing our nation's history by bringing free universal access to "We the People."
