The Lincolns: Five Generations of an American Family

The legend of Abraham Lincoln reflects the fascinating reality of his life through the sum of human accomplishments and failures as well as the family bonds that impacted how these events unfold. We explore the lives of Abraham Lincoln's kin from is mother and father's struggle in early 19th century Kentucky through the death of his last direct descendant. Artifacts from the museum's Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection will form the core of this exhibition, but priceless objects on loan from several of America's leading historical institutions will provide context for this rich and compelling family story.
