A Man of His Time, a Man for All Times

Lincoln exhibitDebuting March 3, 2019

This exhibition traces Abraham Lincoln’s path from a self-educated, rough-hewn lawyer with virtually no administrative experience, to the president who guided a divided nation through the crises of slavery, secession and Civil War. By presenting Lincoln’s own words in speeches, letters and proclamations, the exhibit encourages a deeper understanding of the 16th president’s life, accomplishments and legacy.

This exhibit, originally created by the Gilder Lehrmann Institute of American History, is on loan from the Waukegan History Museum.
