Important Constitutional Documents--FREE!! gives away something free every Monday.  You really need to sign up for it if you haven't already.  Today's freebie is very cool.  It's Important Constitutional Documents.

Here's what Currclick share about the item:

There are many, many documents that came before the U.S. Constitution, and contributed to it directly or indirectly. I have gathered together the ones that I found very useful in my studies of the Constitution. These work well for a "compare and contrast" study between any of the various documents and each other, and between these and the Constitution itself.

The following documents are included in this collection, some as excerpts, and some in their entirety.

Magna Carta (1215), The Mayflower Compact (1620), Fundamental Orders of Connecticut (1639), Massachusetts Body of Liberties (1641), English Bill of Rights (1689), Resolutions of the Stamp Act (1765), Fairfax County (Virginia) Resolves (1774), Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech (1775), Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms (1775), Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" pamphlet (1776), Virginia Declaration of Rights (1776), Constitution of Virginia (1776), Declaration of Independence (1776), Thomas Paine's "American Crisis" pamphlet (1776), Articles of Confederation (1777), Northwest Ordinance (1787), U.S. Constitution (1787), Federalist Paper #10 (1787), Bill of Rights, 1st 10 Amendments to the Constitution (1791), Letters between Danbury Baptists and President Jefferson (1801/1802), Amendments 11 - 27 (1795 - 1992)
