Gifts to the Nation: American Treasures of the Library of Congress
These are the gifts of generations past. They describe the exploits, strivings, accomplishments, and beliefs and attitudes of those who contributed, for better or for worse, to making us who we are as a nation. They were not given lightly –- danger lurked on the high seas or in acts of treason against the King of England; continuing failures preceded ultimate success; the spark of imagination required years of work to come to fruition.
They are here, at the Library of Congress, and now on display through the Library’s Web site, for all generations, present and future. Join us as we take you on a journey through a sampling of the more than 250 items that have been selected to represent the treasures that the Library holds.
