Lincoln/Douglas Debate Exhibit Comes to the Library
Drop by the library during March and April to view a traveling exhibit about the debates that eventually propelled Abraham Lincoln to the White House. Funded in part by a grant from the Illinois Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, the exhibit contains information about the debates, the political climate of the time, and the 1858 senatorial election results. Although Douglas defeated Lincoln in that 1858 election, Lincoln later defeated him, and others, for the presidency.
Historians from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum helped to develop the exhibit's content, text and graphics.
