Magna Carta unveiled at the National Archives in Washington
A 1297 Original of the Magna Carta was unveiled at the National Archives in Washington on March 3, 2008. David Rubenstein recently bought the historical document at auction so that he could give it to the National Archives for display. The Magna Carta dates to 1215 when England's King John acceded to the demands of his barons acknowledging the concept that no man is above the law. It is considered a milestone in constitutional thought and formed the basis of the American Bill of Rights 500 years later. (UPI Photo/Pat Benic)
