When the Constitution of the United States was written in 1787 it changed the lives of many. The constitution is such a famous piece of writing for many reasons.

The people would be given the choice every so often to chose the people they want in power. They had learned from past mistakes to set a new government that would benefit the people.
The three branches check and balance each other out. One branch doesn’t have more power than the other. For laws to be passed there would be stages for that law to go through. If power was abused by the president, the other branches would have the power to impeach the president. “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments” (The Constitution of the united States). Everyone was guaranteed to have a fair trial.
