NSU exhibition to tell story of Lincoln’s struggle

​ABERDEEN, S.D. – “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” a traveling exhibition, will open Sept. 25 at Northern State University’s Beulah Williams Library.

 

 
The exhibit, which will be on display at the library until Nov. 8, examines how President Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the Civil War: the secession of Southern states, slavery and wartime civil liberties.
 
 
The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized the traveling exhibition, which was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The traveling exhibition is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center.
 
 
The traveling exhibition is composed of informative panels featuring photographic reproductions of original documents, including a draft of Lincoln’s first inaugural speech; the Emancipation Proclamation; and the 13th Amendment.
 
 
The library is sponsoring free programs and other events for the public in connection with the exhibition. For more information, contact Shari Theroux at 605-626-2494 or shari.theroux@northern.edu; or visit http://www.northern.edu/library/pages/exhibits.aspx.
