the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States. The Bill of Rights establishes basic American liberties that the government cannot violate.

The American states ratified the Bill of Rights in 1791, three years after the Constitution was ratified. Originally the Bill of Rights applied only to the federal government, but in a series of 20th-century cases, the Supreme Court decided that most of its provisions would also apply to the states. The people were not consulted. Many countries have used the Bill of Rights as a model for defining liberties of mean and women in their constitutions.

The Bill of Rights includes a wide range of protections with a common theme and purpose, that of to define the scope of individual freedom in the United States and to make the political system more democratic.....comprised with information from Encyclopedia Britannica.
