New Release! Under Lincoln’s Hat: 100 Objects that Tell the Story of His Life and Legacy, featuring artifacts from the Library & Museum, by Lincoln Curator James Cornelius and Foundation CEO Carla Knorowski.
Abraham Lincoln is an American hero. He was a true trailblazer, providing strong, principled leadership throughout a tumultuous time in history. His contributions preserved and shaped this great nation, and the ideas for which he fought and died still represent the best of America.
I am proud to say—there is no better place to learn about and experience the enduring Lincoln legacy than the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. It is only through supporters like you that we are able to continue our work to preserve and promote the legacy of our 16th President and the rich history of Illinois. Your donation enables us to serve more people in a more powerful way… from preserving priceless documents and creating educational materials to mounting wonderful exhibits and programs that reach hundreds of thousands visitors. Today, you have the opportunity to support these efforts with a donation to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation’s 2016 Annual Fund. In so doing, we, together, can honor our namesake.
It is my honor to serve as the new Executive Director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. As I come to work every day I am amazed at the quality of our exhibits, the depth of our collections, and the vital role we are taking in education and public engagement. Working hand-in-hand with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation and our dedicated staff members, we strive to constantly to be a resource to people here and around the world.
Please join me in making a tax-deductible contribution to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation and together we can impart to this and future generations across the globe Lincoln’s achievements and ideals—helping to protect the democratic freedoms cherished and sought by so many today.
Thank you again for your generosity, and I hope to see you soon and often at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
Executive Director, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum
