A bill of rights is a list of basic human rights guaranteed by law. To insure these for all U.S. citizens, the Bill of Rights was written at the first meeting of Congress in 1789 and ratified in 1791. Only 10 of the 12 articles proposed were ratified. George Mason is credited with being the “Father of the Bill of Rights.”
