Did you know that the U.S. Constitution is based on an idea that was written down at the Abbey of Arbroath in the Declaration of Arbroath. It was the idea that only a government can have power if it is based on the approval of its nationals. The Declaration of Arbroath was a letter made on April 6, 1320 by Scottish nobles and sent to Pope John XXII. This letter is now seen as the Scottish Declaration of Independence.
