What's new in the past? Find out with Prologue Magazine, the quarterly publication of the National Archives.

The Fall 2009 issue features:

- 'Dear Harry, Love Bess' - Available to the public for the first time, Clifton Truman Daniel reveals the letters Bess Truman wrote to her husband, President Harry S. Truman, completing the correspondence of one of the greatest love stories in the White House.

- Your Land, Our Land - Monroe Dodd shares a few of the pictures and stories available at the regional archives, and in the newly published book by the same name.

- Face to Face with History - Of the 180,000 African Americans who served in the Civil War, only 13 were surgeons. Published for the first time, this photograph of Doctor William Powell, Jr. is a rare face to face glimpse with a profound moment in history.

- 'I Wish to Acknowledge' - Pulitzer Prize winning authors and historians don't operate in vacuums. Jason R. Baron, Jeffery Hartley, and Ezequiel Berdichevsky describe the efforts of the archivists who have helped authors in their research.

- These Walls Can Talk - What secrets lie in the walls of the National Archives building in Washington, DC? Staff writer Rob Crotty takes a closer look at the work of the sculptors who designed the National Archives building, and many other buildings in the District, including the Scottish Rite Temple of Dan Brown lore.

- Patrolling the Coastline on Wheels - In the rarely told story of the Coast Guard's Life Saving Service during World War I, William R. Wells II recalls the stories of the men who were assigned to patrol the coast by motorcycle.

- The Congressional Archives - Why does the National Archives have the #1 issue of Mad Magazine in its holdings? What about opium? Find out as Prologue profiles the Center for Legislative Archives.

- Coastal Bastions and Frontier Forts - John P. Deeben explores what genealogical secrets are hiding within the records of the U.S. military posts, 1821-1920.

- Women's Activism for Peace in World War I - David S. Patterson explores women's activities in the international efforts to mediation during the Great War.

- A Voyage into History - The crew list of the whaler Acushnet lists a sailor who would become famous for his sea-going tales--Herman Melville.
