Thomas Jefferson did not sign the Constitution, nor was he present at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 or when the First Amendment and religious freedoms were debated in the first session of Congress in 1789. During that time he was serving as US Minister to France (equivalent to Ambassador to France).

The first of the Thirteen colonies to sign the constitution was the state of Deleware, the first state to be admitted into the Union. Many people critisize this because the first colony to be founded was Virginia by the British, but in terms of the US history, Delaware was the first state to rattify and sign the constituion. Hense its nickname "the first state"
