The National Museum of American History has opened three new exhibitions: “American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith,” “Religion in Early America,” and “Many Voices, One Nation” (Frischkorn, 2017).  These shows highlight how museums, archives, and libraries serve as sites for exploring what our democracy means.  Have a safe and happy 4th!
