Abraham Lincoln

As president, Abraham Lincoln faced our nation’s greatest crisis–the Civil War. This installation highlights Lincoln’s election in 1860, his leadership during the Civil war, and his tragic assassination.

Artifacts on display are from the John and Jeanne Rowe Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln Collection. The installation is supported by a gift from The Gupta Family with additional support from the Joyce Foundation in honor of Lawrence N. Hansen.
