The Revolutionary War to the War on Terror, "Spies, Traitors, Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America" provides unprecedented perspective into terror on American soil. The exhibition uncovers the forgotten stories of domestic terrorists and foreign agents, militant radicals and saboteurs, who have threatened America's sense of security over the past 200 years. It also explores the questions: How do we identify who the enemy is? And how do we keep the country safe without compromising the civil liberties upon which it was founded?
