Lincoln: Master of Words

Did you miss Lincoln Speaks: Words That Transformed a Nation, an exhibit at the Morgan Library & Museum in Manhattan that closed on June 7?  Well, you can still experience it.  A complete online version of the exhibit, along with supplemental materials, is available at the website of the Lincoln Institute.  The focus of this exhibit is Lincoln's skill with language--the many ways that the successful litigator and President used the power of his written and spoken words to persuade, lead, and inspire diverse audiences, including his constituents, his army, his friends, his country, and the world.  Relax and enjoy any of the exhibit items during short study breaks, or browse particular areas of interest more extensively.  This exhibit has a lot to offer.
