American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith

This Weekend

All Day

American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith explores the history of citizen participation, debate, and compromise from the nation’s formation to today. Through objects such as Thomas Jefferson’s portable desk, used to draft the Declaration of Independence; the inkstand Lincoln used to draft the Emancipation Proclamation; and the table on which Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote the Declaration of Sentiments, the exhibition will focus on the changing political ideals and principles of the nation, citizenship in a pluralistic society, and political participation and engagement.
