Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War
November 27, 2013 – January 24, 2014
This traveling exhibition examines how President Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the Civil War—the secession of Southern states, slavery, and wartime civil liberties. The library will offer a series of programs and events for all ages in connection with the exhibition. See event listings below for more information.
The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized this exhibition, which was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH): great ideas brought to life. Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center. Local sponsors include the Friends of the Verona Public Library, Beyond the Page, the Madison Community Foundation, and the Alliant Energy Foundation.
