Family History Month isn’t the only exciting thing at The Genealogy Center this fall. We are launching a new catalog on Thursday, September 30th. To learn more about the new catalog, view the attached video.

Lincoln & Civil War Politics

September 20, 2010

Running the country and conducting a Civil War weren’t the only things on Abraham Lincoln’s mind. Political controversy was a daily occurrence. The Lincoln Financial Collection, housed at the Allen County Public Library, contains a vast collection of broadsides, pamphlets, booklets, maps, photographs, and cartoons that provide in-depth background on Lincoln and the politics of his time. To highlight this material, The Genealogy Center Gallery is hosting a display of facsimiles of some of these original documents. Stop in and see this fascinating display.
