Today in History: Constitution Day 

It's a little like a scene from To Kill a Mockingbird – Scout and Jem peering through the bannisters in awe of their father, Atticus, who bravely defended Tom Robinson, a black man accused of rape. But it is the Congress, not the courtroom, decades later, and my brothers and I are in Springfield, Illinois, not …
