The Archives can be summarised:

‘To be true to ones own freedom, is in essence to honour and respect the freedom of all others’

Dwight D.Eisenhower 1953

Independence and formation of s nation is a priceless treasure. And I had the privilege to capture the many first of America, The Constituition & The Bill Of Right in The Rotunda Archives, it’s THE MUST place to be in DC:

‘Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth’ father of US, first US president

‘Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… they are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty’ Thomas Jefferson, 1st secretary of the state

‘… all lawful government is founded on the consent of those who are subject to it’ James Wilson, member of committee of Detail that produced the first draft of US Constituition

‘Here sir, the people govern’ Alexander Hamilton, first secretary of the treasury

‘I think we should obtain the confidence of our fellow citizens in proportion as we fortify the rights of the people against the encroachments of the government’ James Madison, Jefferson secretary of the state, 4th president

‘There never was a government over  very extensive country without destroying the liberties of the people’ George Mason, drafted the Virginia Declaration of Right

‘…we are determined to foment a Rebelion and will not hold ourselves bound by the laws in which we have no voice or representation’ Abigail Adams, First Lady

Elizabeth Burgin is the America’s founding monther

‘A nation of well-informed men who have been thought to know and price the rights which God has given then cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins’ Benjamin Franklin

Strong people build the foundation of a strong nation and this was clearly translated in the formation process of the America constitution and Bill of Rights. It amazes me the importance of freedom one has in this beautiful country.
