"…the purpose of the Archives is to make all these records accessible but it’s unusual for us to do it with Twitter and Tumblr and all the rest, but I firmly believe the founders would have been very happy about that."
-Cokie Roberts’ remarks during the Records of Rights reveal this morning
At Today’s Document we’re working to make it much much less unusual to share our records on Tumblr & Twitter (and the rest…). But be sure to check out the new Records of Rights exhibit in person if you can!
This morning was the Big Reveal for the first document to be displayed in our new Records of Rights exhibit!
Deputy Archivist Debra Wall (in yellow) and journalist Cokie Roberts revealed the 14th Amendment at our tweet up.
The public voted online, and the 14th Amendment received over half the votes.
The other documents from the vote will be displayed in the David M. Rubenstein Gallery over the upcoming year. Come and visit us: http://www.archives.gov/nae/visit/rubenstein-gallery.html
