collection were destroyed.

Archives' Magical History Tour
'Public Vaults' Exhibit Opens
By Jacqueline Trescott
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, November 12, 2004; Page A01
The National Archives has always had a peculiar problem. Walking
around its rotunda was an almost mystical experience for generations of
visitors who peered at the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution
and the Bill of Rights, trying to discern the signatures.
