Marshall University celebrates constitution week


Students and faculty will celebrate Constitution Week at Marshall University.

The event started Tuesday evening at Drinko Library with a book signing by professor emeritus Dr. Simon Perry.

His book is entitled "Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson: By Their Deeds You Shall Know them".

Dr. Perry says its good for people to remember their history and know as much as you can about your leaders.

The celebration continues this week with the traditional game of quoits, which consists of tossing metal rings at steel pegs and is similar to pitching horse shoes.

The game, a favorite founder John Marshall, will be played at Buskirk field on Tuesday, September 24 at 11:30 a.m.

A presentation of the Marshall cake will proceed the quoits tournament.
