From the Library of Virginia:
The Library of Virginia is celebrating Archives Month with behind-the-scenes tours of the Archives Stacks, Conservation Lab, and Special Collections. Guests will see unique paper items being conserved and learn about the Mutual Assurance Society Collection, legislative petitions, “murder” maps from court records, and election records. The tours will conclude in the Special Collections reading room where the surrender papers of Lord Cornwallis, Stonewall Jackson’s last communication to General Robert E. Lee, the Virginia Ordinance of Secession, an 1818 engraved script on parchment copy of the Declaration of Independence, and other treasures of Virginia’s history will be on display.
