Sponsored by Visit Baton Rouge, “This is U.S.” combines three exhibits from The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. “Becoming the United States” begins in the colonial era with the first interactions between American Indians, Europeans, and Africans and ends with the Reconstruction of the United States after the Civil War. “Alexander Hamilton” examines Hamilton’s central role during the Revolutionary War and Founding period in creating the economic, constitutional, social, journalistic, political, and foreign policy templates for modern America. “Freedom” documents and illustrates critical figures and events while tracing the evolving concept of freedom in the United States from the country’s founding through 1968.
