Starting Monday night the Emancipation Proclamation was on display for 36 straight hours at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, MI.
This is my sister and nephew waiting patiently (Dad and sister-in-law know to duck the camera!). Only took us 5 hours 15 minutes to reach that famed document! Even with 30 seconds to view it (at 2am!), it was worth it!
Big shout-out to my fellow 12,000+ Michiganders for waiting so patiently, laughing in the lines, saving places for strangers, sharing a moment of history. They really showed their mettle.
