Legacy Projects > Museum Exhibition: "Lincoln: The Formative Years" Museum Exhibition: "Lincoln: The Formative Years"

The Evansville Museum exhibition, “Lincoln: The Formative Years” recalls the life of the nation’s 16th president in Indiana – 1816-1830. Running from April 24 – July 24, the exhibition examines a time that was instrumental in molding Lincoln’s character. The years when he received education – both formal and informal, the years he experienced happiness and endured despair – including the loss of his mother and sister, and the years he grew to manhood. Since Lincoln’s death, artists have created a myriad of works interpreting his life in the Hoosier State. Through works drawn from the collections of the Evansville Museum, the Indiana Historical Society, the Indiana State Museum, Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, and private collections, this exhibition interprets many of the future president’s experiences in the Hoosier State.
