The Reagan Library Exhibit

The Exhibit opened with an opening reception and lecture.

The opening remarks at the opening were given by Duke Blackwood, Director of the Reagan Library and Dean Buckler of Lincoln Cathedral. The Lecture was given by Dean Buckler. We were sent two DVDs by the Reagan Library to include on our website and we are pleased to do so. I invite you to view each video.  The Link to the Introduction  The Link to the Lecture.

Photos by James Glover II / Star staff Gisela Neumann of Simi Valley examines the Magna Carta, which arrived at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley on Jan. 13 and will be on display through June 20. The document, shown above the way it is exhibited, was written in 1215 and made the basic rights of man English law. It was the first to assert that no man, not even the king, is above the law.  



Nina Zale of Chicago watches a video about the document at the museum on Friday. The U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence are modeled after the Magna Carta.

Mr. Neilson,
As long as you apply proper attribution of the source, I do not believe there is any problem with your posting those pictures from our site. 
I'm planning to see the document myself when I get a chance to visit the Library again.
Thank you for your groups good works,
