Take me to the archived exhibition.

The assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, the attempt on the life of Secretary of State William H. Seward, the activities of the conspirators, and the investigation and trials which followed are among the most heavily documented events in history. The Lincoln Collection houses a wealth of material on all of these topics.

This exhibition was originally on display in the Lincoln Case on the second floor of Morris Library from February 4- December 22, 2008.
