Bringing Abe to life.

A new kind of museum has been created to honor Abraham Lincoln, America's 16th President (1861-1865) and one of the country's greatest leaders. Located in his hometown of Springfield, Illinois, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum promises an experience that will make Lincoln the man and history itself real enough to touch.

The museum features a series of interactive exhibits, climaxing with the Civil War. "It connects first emotionally and visually, then lets you dig deeper," said one observer. "I felt the pain of this conflict and the burden that rested on [Lincoln]."
