A literary exhibition of 101 objects from across the Smithsonian's museums that together offer a marvelous new perspective on the history of the United States. Ranging from the earliest years of the pre-Columbian continent to the digital age, and from the American Revolution to Vietnam, each entry pairs the fascinating history surrounding each object with the story of its creation or discovery and the place it has come to occupy in our national memory.--

Fun, eye-candy for all Americans. This book is a great way to visit the Smithsonian for free. Each object has a 3-5 page summary that delves into the time surrounding the object. Often times, events and details are discussed that have never been mentioned in history books.
