America's Founding Documents

1936 Faulkner Murals

Two large-scale murals in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom at the National Archives Building in Washington D.C. depict fictional scenes of the presentation of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The murals were recently restored to their original beauty and are now also interactive on this web site! Please choose either the Flash or HTML versions by clicking the appropriate button underneath each mural image.
