With Malice Toward None: The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Exhibition

Abraham Lincoln's accomplishments have been reaffirmed in the nation's conscience over the past two years in part due to President Obama's great respect for him. But President Obama is not the only one who brings attention to the already revered Lincoln. The Library of Congress is honoring Lincoln's 200th birthday with online exhibit and physical exhibits in Washington, D.C., along with several other locales throughout the year. One of the more eye-catching features of the online exhibit is called "Lincoln Vignettes", on the far right side of the page. Here, drawings, photos, or sculptures of Lincoln represent different time periods of his life. Clicking on each image will take visitors to several items representative of that time period in his life, including photos and documents written by him or about him. Especially noticeable is the way that Lincoln's appearance changed not only as he grew older, but also as he grew more challenged by the strife and war in the country. The photo "At War's End" is a striking example. The tab "Exhibition Items", near the top of the homepage requires downloading Microsoft's Silverlight software to view, which takes just a minute or two, and it allows the feature to work like a sophisticated album. The images can be enlarged or viewed in full screen, and each image has an informative description. The images can be viewed alphabetically or by theme.
