The Houghton Lake Public Library will host a travelling exhibit from Aug. 21 - Sept. 24 titled “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War.” To pay tribute to this exhibit and further educate the community, the Library will host a lecture by Wayne Law Professor Robert Sedler on Aug. 24. The lecture is titled "The President, the Constitution and Civil Liberties: From Lincoln to Bush.”
"Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War," a traveling exhibition for libraries, was organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. "Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War" is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center.
