Trim your tree with history! Our gleaming collectable ornament was made expressly for the 2016 launch of the New-York Historical Society annual ornament program. Heroes, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, stand united on the steps of New-York Historical, ready to shine forth from your tree.
Life-size bronze figures of Abraham Lincoln (1809- 1865) and Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) stand at either entrance to New-York Historical exemplifying the story of freedom embedded in our history. Founded in 1804, New-York Historical has a mission to explore the richly layered political, cultural and social history of New York City and State and the nation, and to serve as a national forum for the discussion of issues surrounding the making and meaning of history.
