The National Archives is an independent Federal agency that preserves and protects the historically valuable records of the United States
government. The mission of the National Archives is to provide public access to
these Federal Government records. Public access to government records
strengthens democracy by allowing Americans to claim their rights of
citizenship, hold their government accountable, and understand their history so
they can participate more effectively in their government.

The interactive Distance Learning programs of the National
Archives feature primary sources from the Archives' holdings, including historical
documents, photographs, maps, posters, and more!
