“One Nation, Under Archie, Part 1 of 2”: Archie and his friends head for Washington, D.C. to take part in a living history festival – where everyone dons costumes of their favorite historical figures!  Does Archie have what it takes to portray a Revolutionary War hero?  Will Betty and Veronica fight over who will wear the Medieval Princess gown?  Can Jughead rustle up some grub as a wild west cowboy?  What kind of scoundrel will Reggie dress as?  It’s a trip through history filled with laughter and learning, as only the Archie gang can deliver!
