Delaware’s copy of the Bill of Rights comes home

For the first time in three years, Delaware’s copy of the Bill of Rights is on display in Dover.

 The document was sent by President George Washington to Delaware Governor Joshua Clayton.  It was sent back to Washington (the President) after being approved by the Delaware General Assembly in 1790.  Usually held at the National Archives in D.C., the Bill of Rights will be on display at the Delaware Public Archives in Dover until July 2, 2012.
