The Bill of Rights was not signed, like the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution was signed by those who wrote the document. The Bill of Rights are the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. They were introduced as a series of amendments,in the first Congress, by James Madison, in 1789.Ten of the amendments were ratified and became the Bill of Rights in 1791. The amendments were intended to place certain restrictions upon the federal government to prevent it from limiting the rights of the citizens of the United States.

A careful examination of the document would reveal that indeed four signatures are present at the bottom making the above statement incorrect. The four signers were:


Speaker of the House of Representatives


Vice-President of the United States, and President of the Senate

Attest, John Beckley,

Clerk of the House of Representatives

Sam. A. Otis,

Secretary of the Senate
