Chapter Summary

The chapter is divided into two parts. The first part deals with seven articles regarding the formation of a Constitution where the first article deals with the Senate and House of Representatives and the rules to be followed. The second article talks about selecting the President of the United States of America. While the third is about the judicial power of the United States where the Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, the fourth is about New States being admitted by the Congress into the Union. The second part of the chapter deals with the various amendments of the Constitution, starting from the first amendment in 1791 to twenty-seventh in 1992. The first amendment prohibits the Congress from making any law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.
