The Enemy Within: Terror in America, 1776-Today


April 3 – August 16, 2009


From the Revolutionary War to the War on Terrorism, The Enemy Within provides unprecedented perspective into terror on American soil. The exhibition uncovers forgotten stories of domestic terrorists and foreign agents, militant radicals and saboteurs who have threatened America’s sense of security over the past 200 years. It explores how we identify enemies, and how we keep the country safe without compromising the civil liberties upon which it was founded.


Travel through time to discover dramatic stories and see artifacts, replicas, historic photographs and film footage, interactive displays, polls, video and much more.
