DEARBORN, Mi. (My TV 20 News at Ten) --- Some of history's most important presidential artifacts are not in Washington D.C. but here in Metro Detroit.

The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn is the home of the chair in which president Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. It also stores several camping gear that belonged to president George Washington.

And something that makes their history even more interesting is how they got to the Henry Ford Museum.

My TV 20's Jorge Avellan has the story.
