Excerpt

It is fitting for us, in this day of many 'isms, to open a book which re-prints the precious documents that tell the March of Freedom in New York State.

The story these pages unfold is simple and sincere. The documents have been arranged so that you, the reader, may see how freedom -- sometimes through trial and error, in violence and in peace -- comes down to us as a living force in our everyday life.

The objective of the New York State Freedom Train is to provide a "university on wheels," which as it tours the State will give every student, and adult person, the opportunity to see and study firsthand the original documents of his heritage.

This official book is designed as a "primer" to aid this study; it reproduces faithfully the documents -- some yellowed with age; others scarred by fire -- as they are shown on the train, and identifies them with a few salient facts and dates. No effort has been made to editorialize or to give opinion. This right is reserved for the reader.
