Bill of Rights

The first ten amendments to the Constitution are known as the Bill of Rights. Amendment 1 establishes freedom of religion, speech, and the press. Amendment 2 sets the right to bear arms. Amendment 3 prohibits the quartering of soldiers without consent. Amendment 4 confirms the right of the people to be secure in their persons against unreasonable searches and seizures and requires probable cause for search warrants. Amendment 5 guarantees due process of law, protection from double jeopardy and self-incrimination. Amendment 6 establishes the right to a speedy trial by an impartial jury and to confront of witnesses. Amendment 7 stipulates the right to a trial by jury in common law suits. Amendment 8 prohibits excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishments. Amendment 9 protects the rights of the people not enumerated in the Constitution. Amendment 10 reserves the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution to the States or to the people.

Susan lettered the Bill of Rights in shades of blue over a drawing of the Statue of Liberty. Words from the first amendment form a circle surrounding the Bill of Rights with words from amendments two through eight forming an inner circle, all lettered in black. The themes of we the people, justice, and liberty established in Susan's rendition of The Preamble are carried throughout the piece as is the color scheme of red, white, blue, black, and brown.
