This exhibition celebrates the 2010 gift of the Otto C. Retner Lincoln and Civil War Literature Collection by his granddaughter and son-in-law, Fran and David Lupardus. The Rentner Collection contains a variety of books, journals, and ephemera focusing on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War era. The collection is particularly strong for books published in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. 

This exhibition was originally on display in the Lincoln Case on the second floor of Morris Library from June 1-December 20, 2011.
