President Lincoln visits Wesleyan
Published: Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Faculty and students at Texas Wesleyan have taken time out to acknowledge President Abraham Lincoln's impact on the United States.
Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, a Man for All Times, a national traveling exhibition that examines Lincoln's life, accomplishments and legacy, opened April 13 in the Eunice and James L. West Library, and will continue until May 7.
"I enjoy the fact that we have an exhibit at Wesleyan for Abraham Lincoln," said Christina Daniel, sophomore liberal studies major. "He was a great leader of our country and it's nice to know we are sharing his accomplishments through this exhibit for students to learn and take from."
Dr. Elizabeth Alexander, associate professor of history, proposed the Lincoln exhibit to Sherri Parker, coordinator of library services.
Along with other staff, Alexander and Parker planned for the exhibit to visit Wesleyan, presented by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
The second floor of the library is currently home to the exhibit and open to the Wesleyan community to view for free.
"The exhibit on Abraham Lincoln was very informative and I feel very privileged to b able to have such an exhibit at Wesleyan," said Alyssa Delgado, freshman business management major.
