May 14 – June 11, 2012 Location: North Valley Regional Library, Anthem, AZ Exhibitions

More books have been written about Lincoln than any other American, yet public knowledge about our most famous president is dominated by a series of iconic images: the son of an illiterate frontier farmer who taught himself to read; the savior of the Union; the Great Emancipator; the martyred leader.

Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times invites visitors to look beyond the myth. We hope that presenting Lincoln’s own words in speeches, letters and proclamations, will encourage a deeper understanding of the nation’s sixteenth president’s life, accomplishments, and legacy.

Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man for All Times is a nationally traveling exhibition organized by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. The traveling exhibition has been made possible in part through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, dedicated to expanding American understanding of human experience and cultural heritage.
