LOS ANGELES — History is being restored at the Richard Nixon Library, where the Watergate exhibit once told visitors that the scandal that led to his downfall was really a "coup" by his rivals.

For years the library exhibit that retraces the former president's notorious saga came under criticism that it present a legacy that was favorable to Nixon.

On Thursday, archivists will present a revamped and expanded version of the exhibit at the Yorba, Calif. that's supposed to be faithful to fact, balanced and devoid of political judgment.

Some material has never before been on public display, and it includes interviews with, among others, Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy and Nixon special counsel Charles Colson, who went to prison for seven months in 1975 for crimes related to the Watergate.
