DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire will show An Empire of Reason Friday, Sept. 16, 2005, at noon and 6 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building Theatre I in recognition of Constitution Day. The film showings are free and open to the public.
 
Constitution Day is designed to commemorate the Sept. 17, 1787, signing of the United States Constitution and to increase awareness and knowledge about the Constitution.
 
An Empire of Reason is an imaginative look back at the ratification of the U.S. Constitution and what it would have been like if television had covered the event.
