The Freedom Train
70th Anniversary
September 17, 2017

September 17, 2017 was the 70th Anniversary of the Freedom Train.

To mark the occasion, Mary Jayne & John Z. Rowe sent out a special greeting card to select friends of the train.

The card featured a small version of the artwork the Rowe's had commissioned by noted railroad artist John Winfield called Freedom Is Not Free. The original art is at Mott's Military Museum outside Columbus, Ohio, along with countless other artifacts related to the 1947 Freedom Train.
