lincolnlib6The Abraham Lincoln Exhibit explores both Abraham Lincoln’s involvement in the 1832 Black Hawk War and the larger events of the war.  The exhibit facilitates visitors awareness of the human side of the United States Civil War history and how Wisconsinites lives were altered during the War.

More than 1,400 non-circulating books about the Civil War line the shelves of this room. Visitors are welcome to refer to these materials during the museum’s operating hours.
