A momentous day at the National Archives! This morning, September 14, 2012, in recognition of the 225th anniversary of the US Constitution, a team installed the Transmittalor the Fifth Pageof the Constitution for public viewing. This document has never before been exhibited at the National Archives, and very likely has never been displayed in its 225 year history. The parchment is encased in an oxygen-free environment as are the other Charters of Freedom documents.
The team who worked together included conservators Mary Lynn Ritzenthaler and Kitty Nicholson, as well as exhibits colleagues, security specialists and art handlers. Constitution Day is Monday September 17. The Transmittal Page is on view from Friday Sept 14 through Wednesday Sept 19.
Since when were they called the “Charters of Freedom”? Sounds like something an elementary textbook came up with for kids to forget about soon as the page id turned. Makes sense, I guess, since this sort of exhibit is for kids. Also the elderly, who are easily amused, and others with nothing better to do.
I thought maybe Sandy Burglar brought back the documents he stole in his pants.
Obama release a third birth certificate?
