Traveling Lincoln Exhibit Comes to Gettysburg College

This past Friday my alma mater's Musselman Library opened up a traveling show entitled "Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War." The exhibition examines how our sixteenth president utilized the Constitution to confront secession, slavery, and war-time civil liberties. The show was created by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Programs Office, and received major funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

To go along with the exhibition, and to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the library has also organized a number of events, programs, and smaller exhibits that it will host this coming spring.

Here is Gettysburg College's press release about "Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War." And here is a list of other programs and events happening this spring. I will be in Gettysburg a couple of times in March, so I hope to see the exhibit and provide some thoughts here on the blog.
