LINCOLN AND THE JEWS

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is introducing an exhibit showcasing Lincoln’s relationships with the Jewish population during the Civil War-era.

The exhibit is called “With Firmness in the Right: Lincoln and the Jews.” It focuses on Lincoln’s role in advocating for acceptance and inclusion for Jews in America. The exhibit also examines how Jewish friends and colleagues of Lincoln affected his life. Several sources, such as the Library of Congress and the Chicago Historical Society, contributed documents, photographs, letters and other artifacts to the exhibit.
