A Most Mobile Nation!
A mobile people in a vast land:
Some of us were here already,
Some of us came hoping for a better life,
Some of us came in chains, …
And all of us are still in motion.
We all have Journey Stories …
Each of us has a powerful journey story deep in our personal heritage. It may be a story of a family uprooting itself in order to stay together, or of sons and daughters moving to another land, or of a distant ancestor, perhaps unknown ….
Americans have always been intensely mobile, and we still are. Farmers, mechanics, entrepreneurs, immigrants, and slaves have built American society over four centuries. Travel over roads, rails, rivers, and trails — even the skies — has shaped the American cultural and economic landscape.
Journey Stories is a Museum on Main Street project organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in association with the National Museum of American History, Kenneth E. Behring Center, Smithson
