Lincoln is here!

Lincoln is here, and we couldn't be happier! The traveling exhibit Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War arrived last week, and was installed quickly by a very dedicated group of Musselman librarians. 

The exhibit kicked off with a lively and well-attended reception on Friday February 22nd,

 accompanied by music from the Civil War Era performed by professor Larry Marschall. 

Funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the exhibition examines President Lincoln's struggle to meet both the political and Constitutional challenges brought on by the Civil War. Organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association, the exhibit is proudly co-hosted by Musselman Library and the Sesquicentennial Planning Committee. 

The exhibit will only be with us until April 4th; don't miss your chance to see it!
