Emancipation Proclamation

December 28, 2012

Through March 2

Indiana State Museum

Now that you’ve seen the movie “Lincoln,” why not see one of the original signed copies of the Emancipation Proclamation? The document—which went into effect 150 years ago this month—will be on display at the state museum. It’s one of only 15 signed by President Lincoln. Want more about Abe? Come back after Feb. 9 when “The Lincolns: Five Generations of an American Family” opens, also featuring artifacts from the museum’s Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection. Details here.
