Emancipation Proclamation Draws Thousands to Henry Ford Museum

by

DEARBORN, MI (Metro Source) - More than two thousand people have viewed the original Emancipation Proclamation, which is on display at the Henry Ford Museum in suburban Detroit. The document issued by President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War declared all persons held as slaves in the then-Confederate States of America to be "forever free." There is no charge for the exhibit and the museum will remain open around the clock until 6 AM on Wednesday.
