WEST LIBERTY, W.Va. -- A traveling exhibit called "Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War" has come to West Liberty University.
The 1,000-square-foot exhibit opened Wednesday, and library director Cheryl Harshman wants the public to come check it out. She began planning for the exhibit three years ago and said it makes the complicated issues of wartime easy to understand.
It explores how Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises: secession by the Southern states, slavery and civil liberties in time of war.
The American Library Association and the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia created the exhibit for display in libraries, historical societies, museum, colleges and more.
Harshman said special events surrounding the exhibit will include a Sept. 11 presentation by a West Virginia University professor.
