Abraham Lincoln exhibit at the Oregon Historical Society

The Oregon Historical Society is proud to present this extraordinary selection of major Lincoln manuscripts and memorabilia from several public and private collections.

The exhibit’s focus is on Lincoln’s humanity, the emancipation of the slaves, and his assassination. Among the many manuscript items to be exhibited are a broadside of the Emancipation Proclamation; items related to his assassination and funeral; an early sum book; The Baltimore Address, one of the few remaining examples of a handwritten speech; hand casts and a face mask; and a letter written by Lincoln declining the territorial governorship of Oregon.
