Lincoln Artifacts Will Be In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on January 6, 2011

A traveling exhibit featuring reproduction artifacts from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is coming to Ottawa.

“Abraham Lincoln: Self-Made in America” was created to mark Lincoln’s 200th birthday.  The exhibit covers the president’s entire life.  The exhibit includes: Lincoln’s favorite books; the nameplate from his Springfield home; his stovepipe hat; a campaign banner; and bloody gloves found in Lincoln’s pocket the night he was assassinated.

Ottawa is the very first stop for the exhibit which will go across the country through next year.  It’ll be at the Scouting Museum from February 5th thru April 11th.
