available for museums, conferences, banks, reunions, tour groups, schools, etc.  The exhibit
has the flexibility of being held on-site at most events regardless of size.  Studies have
shown that social events maximize the overall participation in many meetings and
conferences. Many hotels will offer free meeting rooms in exchange for a promise to fill a
certain number of sleeping rooms.  Meeting rooms can easily be used to feature our
exhibit. The exhibit will add a world-class flavor to any event. One of the notes in the
exhibit has the likeness of the Western and Atlantic Railroad's Texas found in the Atlanta's
Cyclorama.  There is another original note that was believed to be found on the body of
Abraham Lincoln at the time of his death.  The exhibit also includes an original example of
a note that was retrieved from the Titanic.  This exhibit has been featured at one of
Atlanta's largest history programs, attended by more than 5,000 visitors annually, for over

initiative designed to improve the quality of life for children by encouraging and

supporting parents, teachers,families, professionals, and caregivers in their roles as

educators, advocates, and nurturers.   Because John Thomas Williams does not receive

charitable funds or support, his efforts are totally funded by the proceeds derived from the

sales of DVD’s, and the gracious support of sponsors.   All proceeds will be used to defray

the costs of assuring that this exciting exhibit is always available to various school systems

at a reduced cost.   Because of this initiative, as well as the article " The Check that helped

build America, we believe more kids, teens, and adults will be exposed to history,

mathematics, technology, social studies, personal finance and economics.  This will also

assist educators in the classroom to supplement their curriculum in social studies,

mathematics, and geography.   Currently, many educators have found the America's

Historic Currency Exhibit DVD™ to be useful in presentations, interactive discussions

and projects.  America's Historic Currency Exhibit on DVD with music™ is an educational
