Abraham Lincoln is widely acknowledged as one of America's greatest presidents. He has a strong connection to the City of Norwich both before and during his presidency. This national exhibit examines Lincoln's views on the issues of slavery and emancipation, secession and civil liberties, and how they relate to the Constitution.
At the same, the Museum will present From Slavery to Freedom, an exhibition originally assembled by the New London County Historical Society. These two panel exhibitions will be boosted by objects related to Abraham Lincoln and Norwich’s role in the Civil War drawn from the Slater Museum and regional collections.
Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War, a traveling exhibition for libraries, was organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
