101 Objects That Made America

Have you seen the new issue of Smithsonian Magazine highlighting 101 objects from the collection that tell the story of America. How exactly does one select only 101 objects from a collection of 137 MILLION artifacts held by the 19 museums and research centers of the Smithsonian Institution?

The objects in this list have been placed into a number of categories, including Discovery, Voice, Invention, Freedom, and more. 

As I've been thinking about using primary sources in instruction, I found myself fascinated by this object.
This is only one of 32 surviving pieces of proof of the Stamp Act.

Learn more about the objects selected at 101 Objects That Made America.
