Eric Langhorst said: I really enjoyed the presentation today. I have a question about obtaining Lincoln artifacts in modern time. I have read articles about the zeal with Visit My Website which Lincoln collectors obtain their artifacts and the price they are willing to pay when an artifact is sold. February 4, 2009 Does the Smithsonian look to purchase particular artifacts when/or if they Permalink become available? Does the Smithsonian have specific artifacts they would like to add to the collection? Search Thanks again for the great presentation. Very well organized and an amazing opportunity to soak up an incredible amount of information. Eric Langhorst Recent Discussions Reply Kathy Noonan on Discussion: “Public and Private Photography During the Civil Jenny said: War” Hi all, Ed McConnell on Abraham Lincoln Image Gallery from the National Museum of My question is for educators (home, classroom, afterschool, or “other”): American History Visit My Website We’ve heard from some teachers that you want primary sources to use in February 5, 2009 your lessons. We at the National Museum of American History tried to do Mary Dunlap on Discussion: “Abraham this with our “image gallery.” Lincoln: An Extraordinary Life” Permalink - What do you think of the format? - Is there anything we could do differently to make the objects more Eldon Cagle on Discussion: “Abraham Lincoln: An Extraordinary Life” useful to you? - Also, if this format works for you, how do you think you might use the Carol on Discussion: “Please Introduce objects? Yourself” Thanks very much and enjoy the rest of the conference! Reply DENNIS on Discussion: “Mr. Lincoln’s Air Force” Eldon Cagle said: Joe Phelan on Discussion: “Sharing Lesson Ideas” Dear Mr. Rubenstein, Jonathan Finkelstein on Discussion: Last month I visited the Museum of American History, and although I was “Public and Private Photography Visit My Website unable to see the Lincoln exhibit, I bought a copy of Abraham Lincoln, an During the Civil War” May 25, 2009 extraordiary life. Linda Colins on Discussion: “Please Permalink I would like to ask about 2 items, on pages 80 and 83. The pall on p. 80 Introduce Yourself” has a sign, saying it covered Lincoln’s body while lying in state in Cleveland on April 25, 1865. On page 83 the newspaper headline reads, James E. Foster on Discussion: “Please “The Funeral of President Lincoln, New York, April 25, 1865″. You also Introduce Yourself” have a map showing the route from Washington to Illinois. Was Lincoln’s body actually able to go from a daytime funeral service in New York and arrive to lie in state in Cleveland all on the same day? As a second question that I have never been able to determine, exactly when was Andrew Johnson sworn in as president? Over the years I have read articles that say Lincoln’s term ended on April 14, when he was shot, and others saying April 15, when he actually died? Since the wound was obviously fatal from early on, did Johnson take the oath right away, or was it administered after Lincoln passed away? Thanks for your time and help. Sincerely, Eldon Cagle, Jr. Reply Mary Dunlap said: Thank you. After watching the video on Lincoln An Extrodinary Man with the various items from his life and reading some good books on Lincoln I Visit My Website was able to go on Smithsonian’s program on Lincoln in May of 2009. Our group went through the exhibit at the SMAH with Mr Rubinstein. The May 28, 2009 exhibit is laid out with excellance with each item well documented and Permalink showcased. I especially appreciated the research that gave the background information on each piece, its place in Lincoln’s life and when relevant, what had happened with them after Lincoln’s death. The booklet that goes with the exhibit fully documents the exhibit. Reply LEAVE A REPLY ENTER YOUR COMMENT HERE.
