    The Bill of Rights pre-ratification

    Does anyone have a link to the text of the Bill of Rights pre-ratification? Apparently my google isn't working well today.

    I am looking to compare the pre, and post ratification Bill of Rights. The latter is obviously easier to find.

    Link me up, please. Thank you.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    what do you mean pre-ratification? pre ratification of the constitution? The bill of rights did not exist before the constitution for there was no need. The confederation had no power just about and was only really good for fighting a war against a foreign power like england. Or are you looking for proposed amendments that never made it?

    Here is a link for failed amendments.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. The reason I am asking is that the Constitution was ratified between 1787-1789. And the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791. Well, it seems there are some issues here, since the Bill of Rights makes up the first ten Amendments to the Constitution. I am attempting to create an accurate timeline, or find an accurate timeline.
