Abraham Lincoln Exhibit Opens April 8 in Detroit

Two centuries after Abraham Lincoln's birth in 1809, he is one of the most revered figures in our nation's history. Lincoln's life, accomplishments, and legacy are the subject of a new traveling panel exhibition on display at the David Adamany Undergraduate Library from April 8 - May 1.

"Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, a Man for All Times" explores how Lincoln transcended his age and left a constitutional legacy for all Americans.

Please join us for the opening ceremony for the exhibit at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, April 8, in the Atrium of the Undergraduate Library. Marc Kruman, professor and chair of the Wayne State history department will give opening remarks. Refreshments will be served and there will be plenty of exhibit-related giveaways for attendees!

On April 13, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm, Kruman will lecture on the life and times of Abraham Lincoln on the Purdy/Kresge Library Auditorium. All are welcome to attend.
