Unity

Putting the Mortgage on the Cradle, poster by The American Issue Publishing Co., 1917

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union... do ordain and establish this Constitution...

E pluribus unum—Out of many, one—expresses the ideal of our Union: many states, one nation. Representing all of the states, Congress has promoted national unity through a process of inquiry, debate, compromise, and consensus. These documents record the continuing legislative efforts to meet the broadest needs of the people.
