    I am assuming you mean the United States Constitution when referring to the "original document" and the Twenty-seven amendments that have been ratified since the original signing of the Constitution, the first ten of which are known collectively as the Bill of Rights. Most of them gave US citizens specific rights and privileges that the government could not take away. Most of these were not defined in the original constitution and our founding fathers did not want the government, especially the executive office, to become excessively powerful so they created these amendments which gave us and states unalienable rights that the government can not use against us or take away specific rights belonging to the States.

    According to, , “ there was no one event that led up to the addition of amendments and most were handled by the Supreme Court. These cases date back as far as 1793. Some of the most recognizable are the freedom of slaves and rights to education(Brown v.s. education). Another one is the right for every man or women the right to vote.
