Originally petitioned for by the Daughters of the American Revolution, signed by President Eisenhower in 1956 and subsequently put into practice by President George W. Bush in 2002, the observance of Constitution week is designed "to promote study and education about the constitution which was originally adopted by the American Congress of the Confederation on September 17, 1787."  --Wikipedia.
