SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – As America celebrates Juneteenth, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will give everyone a chance to see a rare copy of the document that played a key role in this historic day of freedom, the Emancipation Proclamation.
There will be no charge to see the proclamation, which bears the signature of Abraham Lincoln. It will be displayed June 17, June 19-24 and June 27-30.
The proclamation will be displayed in the ALPLM’s library building, where there is no charge for admission, rather than the museum building. The address is 112 N. Sixth Street in downtown Springfield. The library is open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
