A VISIT TO THE
ABRAHAM LINCOLN LIBRARY

While in Springfield, Illinois,
on a cold and rainy July afternoon,
I paid a visit to the Lincoln Library.

In addition to his collection of writings,
speeches and historical photographs,
life size dioramas featured
  realistic mannequins in historical scenes . . .

including Lincoln with his cabinet
deciding on the Emancipation Proclamation,
and a recreation of a family being
sold into slavery.
(And of course the Civil War.)

A tour of this library is a very moving experience.
An important period in American history.

(And still very relevant.)

  2. Fundirse con esencias y recuerdos, con manos y pensamiento que han moldeado este momento.
    Siempre resulta interesante.
