Tuesday evening marked the opening of the new Abraham Lincoln exhibit at Cornell University’s Kroch Library. Princeton professor James McPherson, arguably the country’s leading Civil War historian, opened the exhibit with a lecture on Cornell’s Campus explaining why the Union would have lost the Civil War without Lincoln as president. The exhibit, entitled “The Lincoln Presidency: Last Full Measure of Devotion,” features one of only five known copies of the Gettysburg Address that Lincoln penned himself. Also on display are copies of the original manuscripts of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. However, University librarian Anne Kenney said yesterday that the original copy will be on display for one week only before being replaced by a facsimile. The exhibit runs through April 16.
