Constitution Daily’s Top 10 Posts of 2011 [VIDEO]

In the spirit of the holidays, the editorial staff of Constitution Daily have grown nostalgic. We’re looking forward to spending time with our friends and families, and we’ve been looking back at what we’ve accomplished since the blog’s official launch in January.

Lists are a standard feature of the holiday season — shopping lists, to-do lists and, as the New Year approaches, Top 10 lists. So we’ve developed a Top 10 list of our own — 10 staff-written stories we were proud to share with Constitution Daily readers over the past year. Editor Steve Frank recalls them for you in the accompanying video. Enjoy, and happy holidays from all of us at the National Constitution Center!
