One hundred fifty-three years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on Jan. 1, 1863, a monument celebrating freedom for the slaves will be erected in Fluvanna.

The Emancipation Proclamation monument will take its place alongside a Confederate monument, a World War memorial, and other historical markers scattered throughout the county.

But the actual spot at which the monument will come to rest is uncertain. And the emotions that edged the voices of those politely discussing the matter showed that even 153 years later, there are wounds that haven’t healed.
