“Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times” at the Harris Karney House in Kansas City, MO

July 30 – August 27, 2012 Location: Kansas City, MO Exhibitions

“Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times” illustrates that two centuries after his birth, Lincoln still speaks to Americans and the world. Raised on the Kentucky and Indiana frontiers, and formed by his experiences as a lawyer in Illinois, Lincoln wrestled with issues of race and rights, with the limits of political leadership, and with civil liberties during wartime. His administration advanced the idea of the United States as a single, unified nation, and he set an agenda for inclusive democracy that continues to have resonance today.
