Kentucky had a lasting influence on his life, shaping him into the man he was destined to become. Documents from recent research into his fatherís land speculation offer insights into the turbulent years spent in Kentucky.

ALSO...An exhibit from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History - Looking at Lincoln: Political Cartoons from the Civil War Era will be on display. These cartoons are vividly biting; they invite us to put aside 21st century assumptions and look at events through the eyes of people living in the era.
