The Clinton Presidential Library will open a new temporary exhibit featuring three original Louisiana Purchase Treaty documents from the National Archives and Records Administration. The Great Expedition: Exploring the Louisiana Purchase and its Impact on Arkansas will tell the remarkable story of the most important land deal in American history – one that ultimately created the State of Arkansas. The exhibit will open Feb. 3, 2018 and run through March 4, 2018.
“The Louisiana Purchase Treaty symbolizes the bold and aspiring spirit of the American people,” said Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero. “We are pleased to make the Louisiana Purchase Treaty documents available to the American people and hope all that can will take this opportunity to view this landmark in American history.”
