ABSTRACT
The article lists the Bill of Rights, which are the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. The first ten amendments were adopted in 1791 and contain the basic freedoms Americans enjoy as a people. The first amendment guarantees the freedom of religion, speech and the press. The fourth amendment protects people from being searched or having property searched or taken away by the government without a good reason. The fifth amendment protects rights of people on trial for crimes. The sixth amendment guarantees people accused of crimes the right to a speedy public trial by jury. The ninth amendment says specific rights listed in the Constitution do not take away rights that may not be listed.
