Open Letter from Executive Producer of Greenfield Village

In 2019, our annual Civil War Remembrance program in Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford featured a re-created U.S. Christian Commission Coffee wagon brought in by Chaplain Alan Farley and his wife Faith.  This very unique and incredible object was an unmeasurable enhancement to our program and was very popular with our guests and participants.  Each of the three morning of the program, we hitched two Percheron horses from our Equine Operations to the coffee wagon and toured Greenfield Village visiting the camps to deliver steaming hot coffee and fresh cookies.

"…Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything. It is a milestone in marriage, in employment to a company, and even 5 years beyond what is considered full service in the military. A person who reaches such a milestone is usually given a special gift or memento acknowledging their loyal service. If that is the case of earthly things how significant must it be for eternal matters such as 25 years of ministry! Well that is what is happening in 2009 as Alan and Faith Farley, and their family, mark 25 years of faithfulness.
