Live re-enactments are among the entertainment during this annual event at The Henry Ford, May 25-27, 2013

A time to commemorate the period that sparked the creation of paper money, the Underground Railroad, Emancipation Proclamation and a new time of freedom and prosperity in America is just around the corner.
