American Freedom Train
Display Car #106
"Human Resources"

The car contained examples of our greatest individual achievements. Among them were Thomas Paine's Common Sense, Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the original manuscript of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, James Monroe's dueling pistols, and examples of the Nobel Prize, the Distinguished Service Cross and the Congressional Medal of Honor.

This car was originally to be called "Labor and Professions", but was changed to "Human Resources" before the train hit the road. The old name shows up in some early printed background material send to the news media.

Originally NYC baggage car #9156.

Photographed at Minneapolis.
