For many of us, the fear of spies and traitors in our midst lessened when the Cold War ended. But for the men and women who defend our country, that only marked a change in tactics. The fight to keep America safe from espionage and foreign agents has been going on since 1776, and it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Spies, Traitors, Saboteurs: Fear and Freedom in America, the new exhibition at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; 314-746-4599 or www.mohistory.org), presents a detailed history of domestic terrorism from Benedict Arnold to Timothy McVeigh and beyond. Spies, Traitors, Saboteurs was created by the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC, and it offers insight on the various threats that have plagued America, from the radicals of the post-World War I era to the modern militia movement. The exhibit is open daily through May 8 at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; 314-746-4599 or www.mohistory.org). Admission is free.
Price: free admission
