Did you know that many critical documents were secretly relocated from the Library of Congress and hidden away for safekeeping after the attack on Pearl Harbor?
Stephen Puleo, author of “American Treasures: The Secret Efforts to Save the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Gettysburg Address”, spoke at the Westborough Public Library on March 27, 2017. Watch the full presentation here. History lovers got treated to an exciting talk chronicling the creation and subsequent adventures of the documents that have shaped America. “They have stood the test of time and today are as relevant and integral to American Democracy as they ever have been …the history of the documents is the history of America – and it is a remarkable history. In an age of cynicism, these documents remind us not only of the promise of America but of the fulfillment of that promise in so many ways.”
