The National Archives

Me and mom in front of the National Archives. The building was huge and beautiful!
There were saying on the corners of all the entrances, the saying were very profound and great saying for everyone.

The Magna Carta is a really old document that was the charter for freedom way when the Pilgrims first came and settled the area. It was when the stamp tax was placed on the people of Massachusetts that they did not consider it valid and ultimately was the start of the American Revolution.

This is the document with the original seal still in place at the bottom.

One of two beautiful murals on the walls around the documents of freedom.

The box that holds the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution.
Mom and me in front of the display.
