As American Archives Month winds down, it’s interesting to consider the wonderful and historical artifacts that can be found in archives that cover a wide range of subjects and eras--and the possibilities are endless! For example, there's the Coca Cola archives, the Warner Brothers archives, and the Hard Rock Cafe archives, to name just a few. The National Archives, established by Franklin Roosevelt in 1934, has countless collections and items pertaining to almost every aspect of American history—here’s some of the fun and interesting online exhibits related to American politics the National Archives has available:
The political cartoons of Clifford Berryman: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/running-for-office/
Presidential elections over the last 80 years: http://www.trumanlibrary.org/museum/4years/index.htm
Gifts to twelve Presidents: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/tokens_and_treasures/tokens_and_treasures_home.html
Happy hunting, everyone!
