Later this month, when the new Lincoln Heritage Museum at Lincoln College celebrates its grand re-opening, visitors to the museum will experience a multi-sensory exhibit that brings the former president’s story alive like never before.
Your good mother tells me you are feeling very badly in your new situation. Allow me to assure you it is a perfect certainty that you will, very soon, feel better — quite happy — if you only stick to the resolution you have taken to procure a military education…. On the contrary, if you falter, and give up, you will lose the power of keeping any resolution, and will regret it all your life.
–June 28, 1862 Letter Lincoln wrote to Quintin Campbell
I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.- Abraham Lincoln
