Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War - A Traveling Exhibition to Libraries

The Norwalk Community College, (NCC) Everett I.L. Baker Library is well suited for hosting Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War. Showcasing the Lincoln exhibit at the Baker Library will ensure that it will reach people from wide and diverse backgrounds. Students, faculty, staff, senior citizens, historians and many others will learn how the Civil War was one of the greatest challenges faced by our nation. Although the conflict ended nearly 150 years ago, it is imperative that every citizen and resident understand the causes, course, and consequences of the Civil War and President Lincolns central role. The exhibit is particularly significant in this bicentennial year of Lincoln's birth and the election and inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States. It is the "unfinished work" of community colleges to help America live up to the ideals of our forefathers and provide a chance for all to "pursue their full measure of happiness".
