Civil War Exhibit at The Henry Ford

The Henry Ford Museum is hosting an exhibit of Civil War artifacts from May 21-September 5, 2011. This in and of itself is very exciting but the true highlight is that, for a few days, the Emancipation Proclamation will be removed from the National Archives and brought to The Henry Ford!

The Emancipation Proclamation will be ready for viewing from 6pm on Monday, June 20th through 6am on Wednesday, June 22nd. The Museum will be open continuously during this time period and admission during this time is free.
