When American revolutionaries waged a war for independence, they took a leap of faith that sent ripple effects across generations. They embraced a radical idea of establishing a government that entrusted the power of the nation not in a monarchy, but in its citizens. Explore that leap of faith in the Smithsonian traveling exhibition, Voices and Votes: Democracy in America now open August 19 - October 1, 2023.
