Senate Ledger

Jacki Lyden talks to Richard Baker, Senate historian, about an 18th-century Senate ledger that was misplaced for over a century. It contains notations from several of the founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr. The ledger was almost tossed in the garbage as the Capitol was being demolished for remodeling.
