    1789 · The United States Constitution

    Age 1

    Originally comprising seven articles, the United States Constitution is the backbone of the law in the Nation. The first three articles talk about the separation of powers, dividing the government into three branches: the legislative, the executive, and the judicial. Articles Four, Five and Six describe the what each state governments have rights to do, how the states and the federal government should act in their relationship, and how the constitutional amendments are shared between all states. The Seventh Article explains and establishes the procedure used by the thirteen States to ratify it. It is regarded as the oldest written and codified national constitution in force. Since the Constitution came into force in 1789, it has been amended 27 times, including an amendment to repeal a previous one.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from one or more of the many places called Whitley (in Yorkshire, Cheshire, Northumberland, Wiltshire, Warwickshire), Whiteley, or Whitleigh (in Berkshire). The placename is common, generally with the meaning ‘white clearing’ (Old English hwīt ‘white’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’), or occasionally ‘wheat clearing’ (Old English hwǣte + lēah). According to Redmonds, the Yorkshire surname originated in a locality in the Elland area, perhaps White Lee in Scammonden or White Lee in Mytholmroyd.
