The very first U.S. map printed in North America is now on loan at the Library of Congress. Washington businessman David Rubenstein bought the 1784 map at auction in December. Dr. John Hebert, chief of the Geography and Map Division at the Library of Congress, tells Federal News Radio about the map itself and what makes it so special.
