Lincoln To Come Back To Kansas

KSCB News - March 30, 2010 12:00 am

The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library is proud

to present the traveling exhibit ??Lincoln in Kansas.?? The exhibit details

Abraham Lincoln??s lone visit to Kansas in 1859 and the lasting influence his

trip had on the Sunflower State.

In December 1859, Lincoln came to Kansas campaigning for the presidency. He

visited several towns in northeast, including Leavenworth and Atchison

during a week-long visit. The exhibit also chronicles his life and legacy

from a young lawyer to his debates with Stephen Douglas up until his

untimely and tragic death in 1865. ??Lincoln in Kansas?? was produced by the

Kansas Historical Society and is part of the Kansas Interpretive Traveling

Exhibits Service.

The exhibit is open to the public for the entire month of April. Regular

library hours are 7:45 a.m.-10 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 7:45 a.m.-4:45 p.m.,

Friday; and 1-9 p.m., Sunday.

For more information, contact the SCCC/ATS Library at (620) 417-1160.
