Lincoln at the library

Historian Susanna Leberman of the library’s archives department will give a PowerPoint presentation depicting life in Huntsville during the Civil War on Sunday, June 3, from 2 to 3 p.m., in the atrium of the main library, 915 Monroe St. 

Leberman's program, which will feature photographs from the library’s special collections, is being held in conjunction with "Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War," a traveling exhibition on view through June 8 in the atrium. Admission is free.

The final lecture in the "Lincoln" series will feature Huntsville author and historian Jacque Proctor Reeves, who will discuss the day of Lincoln’s death on Tuesday, June 5, from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.

"Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War" was organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. It was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. "Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War" is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center.
