Topic - Smithsonian Institution'S National Museum Of American History
Well, that didn't take long. Early in October, staffers from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History went through the Occupy Wall Street encampment in New York's Zucotti Park collecting hand-made posters and other material to build up a record of the embryonic movement in case the protesters end up in the history books — and not just in jail for unlawful assembly and messing up public spaces.
The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History has assembled more than 50 objects from New York, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., and the Transportation Security Administration for its 'Rememberance and Reflection' exhibit — to be shown on tables rather than behind glass.
