Income Tax Day! Explore what the Constitution says about how the American government manages its money. Learn why it was so important for our young nation to raise some cash quickly, and how Alexander Hamilton came up with a plan to create a national bank, despite a debate over whether the Constitution gave the government the power to do so. We’ll pay a visit to the First Bank of the United States to see what architecture reveals about how the Bank was supposed to function. We’ll also find out when, how, and why the Constitution was amended to allow the federal government to impose an income tax, and learn where those tax dollars go today.
