Entire Program: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/SExpl American History TV visited the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History to learn about specimens collected by a U.S. Government expedition to circumnavigate the globe, map and chart Pacific islands, prove that Antarctica was a continent. The specimens became the foundation for the Smithsonian Institution, and are still being used for science today.
