Dr. Ronald C. White, Jr. presents a close reading of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address at a public lecture presented in conjunction with the exhibit Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War at the Jereld R.

The exhibit (organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office, and sponsored by the American Library Association, the Linfield College Department of History, and the Jereld R. Nicholson Library) explores how Lincoln used the Constitution to confront major crises of the Civil War, including the secession of southern states, slavery, and wartime civil liberties.
