Minnesota has planned a vibrant civic non-partisan celebration of American history, democracy, and the U.S. Presidency at the Minneapolis Convention Center during the Republican National Convention - CivicFest 2008. The featured exhibit on the U.S. Presidency will be Stanley L. Klos’ President Who? Forgotten Founders Exhibit. The anthology of rare documents focuses on the rise of the U.S. Presidency from 1774 to 1788.

The Minneapolis Convention Center
Exhibit’s dates and hours are:

Friday, August 29 - 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, August 30 - 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The Smithsonian Exhibit, The American Presidency, A Glorious Burden incorrectly interpreted the rise of the U.S. Presidency starting it with John Hanson as the First President of the Continental Congress. Hanson was the third President of the United States of America in Congress Assembled. In the background are Mr. Klos' contributions to the exhibit including an 18th Century printing of the Constitution of 1777 , Presidential letters and documents from John Hancock, Arthur St. Clair, Thomas McKean, Thomas Mifflin as presidents of the Continental Congress and the United States. Also including in the Smithsonian exhibit was the first public printing of the Constitution of 1787.

Forgotten Founders -- Historic Documents and Medallions of Freedom is an exhibit of rare historic documents, manuscripts, letters, newspapers and broadsides that mark the lives of each of the fourteen men who served the American Colonies/States from 1774 to 1788. This exhibit will be unveiled at Minneapolis Convention Center during the 2008 Republican National Convention as part of the MSP 2008 Civic Fest. The first Presidents served under the Continental Congress from 1774 to 1781, while ten served as Presidents of the United States of America, 1781 - 1788 under the first federal constitution of 1777 that formed the “Perpetual Union.”
