Summary

The Hands on History Room, located on the second floor of the Museum of American History just around the corner from the Star-Spangled Banner, opened December 8, 1992. 11th graders Jeremy Randall and Rebecca Walther of Watkins Mill High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland got a chance to harness a mule, an activity in the Hands on History Room. Rebecca is the daughter of NMAH Publications Specialist Susan Walther, one of many staffers who worked on the project.
