The states ratify the amendments December 15, 1791 and President George Washington sends a handwritten copy of the Bill of Rights to each of the 13 states. Pennsylvania’s copy goes missing in the late 1800s and New York’s copy might have been destroyed in a fire at New York’s archives.</p> Thu, 23 May 2013 17:33:09 +0000 Kevin Gavin 10070 at http://wesa.fm Original Copy of Bill of Rights Coming to Pennsylvania
