Savannah State hosts Lincoln exhibit
Placeholder Image
SAVANNAH — Savannah State University is hosting a national traveling exhibit through Sept. 30 that examines Abraham Lincoln’s life, accomplishments and legacy at the Asa H. Gordon Library.
“Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times” traces Lincoln’s path from a self-educated, rough-hewn lawyer with virtually no administrative experience, to the president who guided a divided nation through the crises of slavery, secession and Civil War. The exhibit includes speeches, letters and proclamations by the 16th president in a series of panels: Young Mr. Lincoln, Paths to the Presidency, Civil War President, The Union Preserved/The President Assassinated and Lincoln’s Legacy.    
Programs and activities are planned in conjunction with the exhibit. All events are free and open to the public.
Savannah State is one of 40 sites nationwide hosting the Lincoln exhibition, which is organized by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and made possible, in part, by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
