This special exhibit features documents and artifacts highlighting different aspects of Lincoln's life such as family, career, the presidency, his assassination and more. Lincoln Curator James Cornelius worked with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation to select rarely seen items with a personal connection to the 16th president from the immense Taper Collection.
The exhibit takes its name from the Gettysburg Address, in which Lincoln described the "unfinished work" of bringing freedom to the nation. The name refers both to Lincoln's life being cut short and to the mission of ensuring that these and other irreplaceable artifacts find a permanent home at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum.
This exhibit may be added to a Museum rental event to further enhance your event guests' experience.
