ABILENE, Kan. (AP) -- George Washington's personal copy of the early laws of the United States written in 1789 goes on display next week in Kansas.

Washington's copy of the Acts of Congress will be available for viewing April 23 through May 3 at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene.

The documents are on a nationwide tour of all 13 presidential libraries, under a partnership of the National Archives and the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.

The papers are considered some of the most significant works in Washington's personal collection, which includes the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and legislation passed in the first session of Congress.
