Description

Spine title reads: America's 400th Anniversary, Final Report of the Federal Commission. Final Report of the Jamestown 400th Commemoration Commission. Summarizes the story of America's 400th Anniversary, an 18-month program of commemorative activities and events.

The 400th anniversary commemoration produced stunning new discoveries, significant new scholarship, impressive new interpretive facilities, and illuminating new educational initiatives that will continue to enhance our understanding of the remarkably consequential convergence of man and nature in the Chesapeake region four centuries ago.   Anniversary-related programs and activities increased public awareness of the foundational importance of the Jamestown settlement and Virginia colony in our nation’s history.  The activities enhanced language, culture, values, a shared past, and an interdependent future.  The programs also featured a timely and profound international dialogue on the foundations and future of democracy –a wide-ranging assessment of the free institutions that have prospered worldwide in our time, and on which the aspirations of people everywhere depend.
