|Agency History:||Congress established the National Archives in 1934 to preserve and care for the records of the U.S. Government. Their mission is to provide public access to Federal Government records in their custody and control. Public access to government records strengthens democracy by allowing Americans to claim their rights of citizenship, hold their government accountable, and understand their history so they can participate more effectively in their government. The National Archives now has over 40 facilities nationwide including field archives, Federal Records Centers, Presidential Libraries, the Federal Register, and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.|
