"As a member of the Minnesota Historical Society's Executive Council, I want to congratulate the Minnesota History Center for their dedicated work to exhibit our nation's most sacred documents. This historical collection will provide schools and other groups with a unique opportunity to learn about our Constitution, our rights, and our freedoms. I encourage all Minnesotans to plan a visit to the Minnesota History Center and urge organizations across the state to plan other events to celebrate our Constitution. "
