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.

Age 20

Name Meaning

1 English: nickname for a refined person, sometimes no doubt given ironically, from Old French, Middle English curteis, co(u)rtois ‘refined’, ‘accomplished’ (a derivative of Old French court, see Court 1).2 English: from Middle English curt ‘short’ + hose ‘leggings’, hence a nickname for a short person or one who wore short stockings. This nickname was borne by William the Conqueror's son Robert, but it is not clear whether it has given rise to any surnames.3 Altered form of French Courtois .
