Significance & Research
The Object: Chess piece from Camp David
Details about the Object: The chess piece was a part of the set at Camp David that the President used during his stay. On the bottom of the chess piece I added “Camp David” to help identify the object.
President: Jimmy Carter, 1977-1981, Democratic Party
Presidential Role: Chief Diplomat
Peace treaty Camp David Accords of 1978 with counties Egypt and Israel.
Before the Camp David Accords was established president Sādāt of introduced the idea of a strong relationship with the U.S. The first lady, Rosalynn Carter suggested that her husband, Jimmy Carter, invite the prime minister and president to Camp David where the relative privacy and seclusion might provide a setting for a breakthrough.
Impact on America
I chose this President and artifact because it signifies the framework for a historic peace treaty that was concluded between the three countries. Three months after the treaty was signed there was a diplomatic relationship between the countries. As a result, Israel withdrew from West Bank and Gaza which helped introduce the Palestinian self-government.
