The Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau is hosting “Freedom: A History of US” through Nov. 11 in honor of Veteran’s Day.

The free exhibit is showcased in the CVB’s Grand Gallery at 636 S. Main St.

The exhibition features artifacts, documents and photos from Americans who have fought, and in some cases died, for freedom. The exhibition invites guests to read the words and see the images of men and women who, whether they arrived in this land by choice or in chains, forged the nation. Their words and images provide insight into the complexity of the past, promoters say.

The traveling exhibition was developed by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and the Meserve-Kunhardt Collection, and is based upon an exhibition of the same name at the New-York historical society.

The exhibition is sponsored by General Electric, with additional funding provided by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.

Veterans are encouraged to visit the exhibition. The show will be open 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday; 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
