Juneteenth celebrations commemorate Emancipation coming to Texas after the Civil War. Alexandria's Freedom House held a special event this Juneteenth, for the "Lincoln Album." Display panels recreate pages of the album, hopeful that local community might identify some of their ancestors.
This original photo album was given by the Freed People of Alexandria to President Abraham Lincoln shortly before his assassination.
The Freedom House Museum was once part of the headquarters for the largest domestic slave trading firm in the United States, Franklin and Armfield.
