Traveling Lincoln exhibit coming to Atlanta

ATLANTA — A traveling exhibit dedicated to telling the inside story of the nation’s 16th president is coming to Atlanta.

The Atlanta History Center will host “With Malice Toward None: The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Exhibition” from Sept. 4 through Nov. 7. The center is the only Southern stop on the exhibit’s tour.

The exhibit, which was launched to commemorate Lincoln’s 200th birthday, includes documents, photographs and multimedia presentations.

It aims to give visitors “a glimpse into Lincoln’s presidency and address the storm of controversies he faced, including demanding challenges to individual civil liberties and our national Constitution, as well as controversies over slavery and race, and the defiance of the South leading to the dissolution of the Union and the Civil War,” according to a news release.
