New Exhibit at Central Library! Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man For All Times

Lincoln Gilder Lehrman Institute.jpgOrganized by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man of All Time is a national traveling exhibition that has been made possible in part through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, dedicated to expanding American understanding of human experience and cultural heritage. The exhibit features seven panels that display text, photos and graphics about the 16th president. The exhibit begins by discussing Lincoln's early life in Kentucky and then continues through his time in Springfield, as president, his assassination and finally his legacy. The exhibit also has two displays specifically devoted to slavery and the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times will run from Nov. 12- Dec. 12.
