The report summarizes the extraordinary story of America's 400th Anniversary, an 18-month program of commemorative activites and events that afforded Americans the opportunity to honor their nation's beginning at Jamestown and reflect upon the vision and values that define the world's oldest republic.

The 400th anniversary commemoration produced stunning new discoveries, significant new scholarship, impressive new interpretive facilities, and illuminating new educational

Initiatives that will continue to enhance our understanding of the remarkably consequential convergence of man and nature in the Chesapeake region four centuries ago. Anniversary-related programs and activities increased public awareness of the foundational importance of the Jamestown settlement and Virginia colony in our nation's history. The activities enhanced language, culture, values, a shared past, and an interdependent future. The programs also featured a timely and profound international dialogue on the foundations and future of democracy -a wide-ranging assessment of the free institutions that have prospered worldwide in our time, and on which the aspirations of people everywhere depend.
