After an eventful night in Washington D.C., it was time to head home, but our flight didn’t leave until later that day. So what do we do?

More things to see

We ventured back to the Navy Memorial to see if the archives were open. I am glad we did go. We noticed some incredible things in that place.



What exactly are the archives. Well, this is the headquarters. This holds original copies of the following:

  • Declaration of Independence
  • The Constitution
  • Bill of Rights

They are stored in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom.

Yea, I am glad I went.


Has it ever been in a movie?

Why yes it has. In National Treasure. Where they borrowed the Declaration of Independence.

Yes, we did see that. It was cool actually to see that document. Not only did I see where it was signed. Now I have seen the actual document. Kind of cool. Isn’t it?
