Donate to install a Life-Sized bronze statue of President Lincoln signing the Emancipation Proclamation at our Museum.
In Washington, D.C., the African American Civil War Memorial Museum is on a campaign to bring Lincoln and the Proclamation to join the 209,145 African American Soldiers and their White officers in the Nation's Capital.
The project to install the Lincoln Emancipation Freedom and Union statue was well underway when the deadly coronavirus hit and shut things down this past March. Now the campaign is $30,000 short of the amount it needs to match a grant from the City. You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to this Go Fund Me Campaign.
The six-foot-tall bronze statue of President Abraham Lincoln shows the President frozen in time at the moment in history when he is signing the Emancipation Proclamation into law. The United States Colored Troops marched through paragraph eight of the proclamation into military service that provided the gateway to freedom, citizenship, and voting rights for 3.9 million formerly enslaved persons held in bondage and claimed as property. The new Lincoln statue will sit in front of a newly renovated museum space that will reopen to the public in the Spring of 2021.
