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 of Abraham Lincoln that focuses on his 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 Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth Amendment, and the Order to Blockade the Southern Ports - the official start of the Civil War - are included in the exhibit.
