Massachusetts ratified the 1787 United States Constitution on February 6th, 1788 where the state capitol today resides in Boston.

The official Massachusetts state motto is "Ense Petit Placidam Sub Libertate Quietem," which is Latin for "By the Sword We Seek Peace, But Peace Only Under Liberty." The motto was adopted by the state in 1775 and is a reference to the Revolutionary War. The phrase is attributed to the Roman historian Sallust, who wrote it in reference to the Roman Republic's struggle for freedom from the monarchy. The motto is symbolic of Massachusetts' commitment to freedom and liberty, and can be seen as a reminder that peace can only be achieved when liberty is respected.
