Shelbyville Bicentennial Time Capsule

There's a photo of Louisville's bicentennial time capsule here, and now here's one for Shelbyville - only it's not to commemorate the nation's bicentennial. It's for that of the U.S. Constitution's creation and adoption in 1787.

(Sorta boggles the mind to think that between 1776 and 1787, we had a free and independent nation yet had no constitution at all. No law. No governance. Wooden-toothed men in powdered wigs and Masonic aprons frolicking with wild turkeys in the woods. Total chaos.)

The Articles of Confederation weren't quite anarchy...

Great post. I think I missed the capsule on my visit to Shelbyville
