Itâs hard to get close to General George Washington or peek inside the mind of President Harry S. Truman, and not just for the obvious reasons. Fortunately for the web-browsing public, there is this interactive exhibit, which is designed to complement an in situ exhibit at the National Archives. Simply titled âEyewitness: American Originals from the National Archivesâ, the exhibit allows visitors to explore remarkable photographs and primary documents from the massive collections held by the National Archives. Currently, visitors can view just over a dozen such documents and photographs on the site, but there are plans to expand in the near future. Within the General Washington section, visitors will learn about his concern with a potential smallpox infection during the Revolutionary War, accompanied by scanned letters in his own hand and several pieces of visual ephemera. The site is very well-designed and users will enjoy looking through the first-hand accounts offered by other personages, including George H.W. Bush and John Lewis.
