There are many, many documents that came before the U.S. Constitution, and contributed to it directly or indirectly. I have gathered together the ones that I found very useful in my studies of the Constitution. These work well for a “compare and contrast” study between any of the various documents and each other, and between these and the Constitution itself. These also lead to an important understanding of how our constitution came to be.

The following documents are included in this collection, some as excerpts, and some in their entirety.

Magna Carta (1215)

The Mayflower Compact (1620)
