Published to celebrate a permanent exhibition at the National Archives building in Washington, DC, The Public Vaults Unlocked: Discovering American History in the National Archives provides engaging and visual access to American history. Readers look behind the scenes, in the vaults and stacks, to explore unique moments in the nation's past. A letter written by George Washington, scribbled notes by John. F. Kennedy during a Cuban Missile Crisis meeting, the arrest report of Rosa Parks, and a "Safehaven" document that brought to light information about assets stolen from Holocaust victims still compel our attention and serve to illustrate the many stories that make up our nation's history. Hardcover, 176 pages.
