One of our nation’s most significant documents, the Emancipation Proclamation, will be on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit Dearborn.

Following a brief opening ceremony, the original document will be on display around-the-clock, straight through early Wednesday morning, June 22, when it will return to Washington DC. More info and related events at the Emancipation Proclamation at the Hentry Ford.

I couldn’t think of a more fitting image for this than the Rosa Parks bus, just one of many amazing relics of American history that are displayed at the Henry Ford (see their exhibits). Check this out on black and in Rafael’s great Detroit slideshow.

Speaking of slideshows, here’s the Henry Ford Museum slideshow from the Absolute Michigan group on Flickr!
