George Washington’s Personal Copy Of Constitution, Other Key Documents On Display In Ventura County

Posted on Friday, March 1, 2013 8:55am

A book which played a pivotal role in American history is going on display later this morning, on the South Coast.

“Acts Of Congress” was a book owned by our first president.

It was given to George Washington as a guidebook of actions taken by the first Congress to use as reference as he embarked on guiding our nation.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports the artifact, recently bought at auction by a museum for nearly ten million dollars, is part of a new exhibition opening at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, in Simi Valley.
