National Archives

Today I waited on a series of lines, totaling 1 1/2 hours, to see the National Archives. I finally made it up to view the Dec of Independence and it was completely faded. The only thing you could make out was the large and bold "John Hancock"- Everything else was illegible. The Bill of Rights was the same way. However, the Constitution was well preserved. My advice: not worth the wait. Not only did the massive amounts of misbehaved children on school trips make it very unenjoyable, but the bad condition of the documents was a big disappointment.
