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

Using the Constitution as the cohesive thread, the 1,000 square-foot panel exhibition offers a perspective on Abraham Lincoln that focuses on this struggle to meet the political and constitutional challenges of the Civil War. Organized thematically, the exhibition explores how Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the war--the secession of Southern states, slavery, and wartime civil liberties. Reproductions of significant documents signed by Lincoln, including the Emanicipation Proclmation, the Thirteenth Amendment, and the Order to Blockade the Souther Ports--the official start of the Civil War--are included in the exhibition.
