Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center.  It aims to encourage visitors to see the Civil War as a test of the U.S. Constitution;  to consider Lincoln’s options through his own eyes; and to reflect on the significance of that great 19th-century conflict for Americans today.

The exhibition will be on the 2nd floor of Hale Library April 29-June 6th, 2012. There will also be a complementary exhibit titled The Lincoln Era in Special Collections. This exhibition will be located in the Richard L. D. and Marjorie J. Morse Department of Special Collections, 5th floor of Hale Library.
