Liberating Honest Abe

UV Light + Historical artifacts = no good!

Preserving East Bloomfield's past for future generations takes some planning (and the right kind of equipment!) Unfortunately, sharing local artifacts with the community can be a challenge, as both natural and artificial light can damage the objects on display. It also limits our ability to borrow other really neat items, because we don't have the capacity to properly display them.

Liberating Honest Abe

The Society would like to share something incredibly special from the archives; a military commission signed by Abraham Lincoln, for Lt. Myron Adams, an officer from Bloomfield, New York. This special document requires a UV-filtering case, to protect the delicate paper from deteriorating, and its ink from fading. 

How you can help 

We appreciate donations of any size, but do offer some special incentives to those who choose an amount from the menu on the side. Simply click on one of the menu options directly, or the "Donate" button above for a different amount.

With your support, we can "Liberate Honest Abe" from his special storage box, and share this great document with the community. Proceeds will be used to purchase this special piece of equipment to not only display the commission EBHS to share important historical artifacts with the community for years to come!
