Explore the US Constitution Assignment
The three facts that I chose from the 1787 Constitution are as listed: 1. The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.(Article II, section 2) 2. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.(Article IV, Section 4) 3. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.(Article III, Section 3)
The first fact talks about the president and the power that he has. When he is elected to be the president of the United States of America he then controls the Army, Navy and Militia. That means if the president wants a threat eliminated he could command his military to eliminate it. The second fact says that the United States government shall, to every state in the union, provide protection against invasion and against domestic threats. So if one state is under invasion or if it has a domestic threat, all of the states should try to help it. In the third fact, it says that any person that is found guilty of treason must have two witnesses of the act, and/or a confession by the convicted in a court. So if you are arrested for treason against the United States, you would need two eyewitnesses or your own confession in order to be found guilty.
