Magna Carta: Foundation of Freedom
MAGNA CARTA: FOUNDATION OF FREEDOM
July 4 – 25, 2007
Presented by the National Education Association, this rare, original copy of one of the world's greatest charters of freedom was on loan from the Lincoln Cathedral in England. Signed by King John in 1215, Magna Carta established safeguards to liberty that served as a foundation for the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
