Video title: Epilogue - The Democratic Faith

Use this American Government by the People video entitled The Democratic Faith to study how Democracy developed gradually. Learn how a revolution had to be fought before a system of representative democracy in the United States could be tried and tested. Learn how it took several years before a national constitution could be written, and almost another year to be ratified, and how it took still another two years before a Bill of Rights could be adopted and ratified. Discover how it has taken more than two hundred years for democratic institutions to be refined and for systems of competition and choice to be hammered out. Democratic institutions such as free and fair elections and equal protection of the laws in the United States are still a work in progress, still in the process of being refined and improved.

Learn about The Democratic Faith.
