The traveling exhibit "Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War" will be on display Jan. 26 through March 8 at the Library Technology Center at North Georgia College & State University in Dahlonega.
The exhibit opening is set for 7 p.m. Thursday in the library's Special Collections Room.
"Lincoln" examines how President Abraham Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the Civil War: the secession of Southern states, slavery and wartime civil liberties.
This exhibition was made possible through the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office and funded with a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
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 Thirteenth Amendment.
In addition, the Library Technology Center is sponsoring a series of lectures and a musical program free and open to the public. For information, contact Bonnie Morris at 706-864-1520 or email@example.com, or visit libguides.northgeorgia.edu/lincoln.
