In commemoration of the 800th anniversary of the granting of Magna Carta, this traveling exhibition shared images of objects from Library of Congress collections that illustrated Magna Carta's influence throughout the centuries and explained the document's storied history. This exhibition was produced by the American Bar Association and Library of Congress, and was co-sponsored by Maine Secretary of State's Office and Maine State Archives. The opening reception was sponsored by Pierce Atwood.
