Am Rev treasures to be unveiled

Breaking News

Inside box 218 were the blogs of the 18th Century - pamphlets about war, democracy, monarchy, slavery and social customs authored by radicals and revolutionaries such as Thomas Paine.

In another box, an original broadside of the Treaty of Paris dated 1784. And in another, a stamp from the Stamp Act of 1765.

They are part of the 329,069 items at the Morristown National Historical Park, where a lack of display space has kept almost all of that collection in storage.

Come next weekend - President's Day weekend - however, the pamphlets and some of the other items will be out for the public to see for the first time inside the expanded museum.
