Summary
Collectively known as the United States Bill of Rights, these first ten amendments to the United States Constitution limit the powers of the federal government and protect the rights of all citizens, residents and visitors on United States territory.

This document plays a central role in American law and remains to this day a symbol of the freedoms and culture of this nation
