When you look at Mr. Lincoln, what do you think? You think of a man of extraordinary dignity. . . . So what is Mr. Lincoln’s name? It’s Abraham Lincoln. He did not let anyone call him Abe.
Lincoln Speaks: Words That Transformed a Nation, an exhibition co-organized by the Morgan Library & Museum and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, was on display at the Morgan Library & Museum, January 23 through June 7, 2015. A complete online version of the exhibition, along with supplemental materials, is available right here on abrahamlincoln.org. More than eighty items from his remarkable life–speeches, letters, legal writings, personal notes, and more–are included in the exhibition.
