The Nathanael Greene Chapter of the Daughters of the Revolution recognized the development of the Constitution of the United States for Constitution Day, September 17th , by meeting with local mayors who signed proclamations for their towns.  The DAR initiated Constitution Week in 1955 to promote the observance of the US Constitution with a memorial week beginning on the anniversary of the signing.  The DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, is the only structure dedicated to the US Constitution, and the week is to promote teaching and understanding this great document.

The Constitution of the United States was signed on September 17, 1787, about five years after the backcountry of South Carolina was opened up to settlement for patriot soldiers.  At that time South Carolina was governed by prominent landowners in the Low Country and this important document was designed through a Constitutional Convention in which several of those men participated.  They included Pierce Butler, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, Charles Pinckney, and John Rutledge, who are listed among the Founding Fathers.

 This year the Nathanael Greene DAR bell ringing celebration honoring the signing of the Constitution took place September 18th at the Nathanael Greene statue in downtown Greenville.  The chapter received 6 proclamations which included 4 photo opportunities.  Constitution Week chairwomen, Terry Gordon and Shelley Hart, also, planned the Bell Ringing ceremony and distributed 170
