John Bull & Uncle Sam - Four Centuries of British-American Relations

A joint project of the Library of Congress and The British Library, the John Bull and Uncle Sam exhibition brings 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 never has been displayed in either country, and some of the rarest and most valued objects from each collection will travel across the Atlantic for the first, and possibly only, time. After being presented at the Library of Congress from November 18, 1999, through March 4, 2000, the exhibition will open at The British Library (external link) in 2002.
