More than 700 "revolutionary" images are there to be
explored. You can also explore 400 years of British-American relations
in the Library exhibition "John
Bull and Uncle Sam." A joint project of the Library of
Congress and the British Library, this exhibition (which closed
at the Library in March 2000) brought together for the first time
treasures from the two greatest libraries in the English-speaking
world in an exploration of selected time periods and cultural movements
that provide unique insights into the relationship of the United
States and Great Britain. The Library of Congress and the British
Library are unique among world cultural institutions in their range
(more than 250 million items in the combined collections) and depth.
Much of the material in "John Bull and Uncle Sam" had
never been displayed in either country.
