The first Congress of the United States approved 12 amendments
to the U.S.
Constitution, and sent them to the states for ratification.

The amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, were designed to
protect the basic rights of U.S. citizens, guaranteeing the freedom
of speech, press, assembly, and exercise of religion; the right to
fair legal procedure, to bear arms; and that powers not delegated
to the federal government were reserved for the states and the
people.
