New England Cable News is carrying a story about the brand-new Commonwealth Museum in Boston. The museum contains many hidden treasures and jewels from Massachusetts history.
The network's web site has a video that illustrates some of the exhibits available at the Commonwealth Museum. Michael Comeau, the assistant archivist of the Commonwealth Museum, is interviewed and shows an original copy of the Declaration of Independence, which is considered one of the more authentic copies.
Also, Mike takes a peak at an original copy of the Bill of Rights. Each state was given a copy of the amendments. The items on display also include the oldest written constitution in existence.
