George Washington's "Acts" Goes on Tour

The National Archives and the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association have teamed up to put George Washington's personal and marked-up copy of the Acts of Congress on tour at the thirteen presidential libraries.  The volume includes the Constitution, the proposed bill of rights, and legislative acts adopted by the first Congress.  It also includes Washington's hand-written margin notes.  History TV and C-SPAN3 put together this video introduction to the exhibit:


The tour started yesterday, March 1, at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.  It continues through the other presidential libraries through September 2013.  The full schedule is here.
