Washington D. C. - National Archives - 2006 Trip

Every American should visit the National Archives at least once if for no other reason than to see The Constitution of the States, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence.  These important documents contain the words that provide us the freedoms we often trust others to protect.  Because these items are in a room with a specially controlled environment, there’s a wait to see the documents.  The small room is also crowded, so don’t think of this as an opportunity to read the originals in full.  The room’s lighting makes it nearly impossible to take clear photos. 
Telecasts, documents, and other communications both public and declassified are on display. 

If you have the time, and I didn’t this trip, you can visit a different section of the building to request to look at other documents pertaining to the United States including past military records if you’re so inclined.
