This untitled illustration by cartoonist Clifford Berryman, which appeared in the Washington Evening Star on February 8, 1915, shows the difficulty that President Woodrow Wilson had in getting the Ship Purchase Bill through Congress. Here, Wilson is saying that General George Washington's crossing of the Delaware was a pleasure trip compared to getting the Ship Purchase Bill through, since concern was that it would lead to the United States entry into the war in Europe.

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
