Lincoln Exhibit and Special Civil War Programming
on Tap at the Heritage Center
Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is hosting an exhibit on “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” and will conduct a number of special Civil War programs during the month of April.
The Lincoln exhibit will be on display at the Heritage Center April 3 – May 16.
The exhibit addresses the topics of division in the United States, the Civil War, slavery, and civil liberties. To compliment the exhibit, the winning artwork from the Red Dirt BBQ Student Art Show will also be on display. The students worked with the same exhibit theme in mind when creating their winning pieces of art.
In addition to the Lincoln exhibit, the Heritage Center will host a lecture on the “American Civil War in Indian Territory” presented by Dr. Bill Corbett from Northeastern State University. The lecture will be held on April 8 at 7 p.m. at the Northern Oklahoma College Enid Campus in the Gantz Center. Admission is free.
The Civil War finale concert has been cancelled due to impending inclement weather.
“Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” is a traveling exhibition for libraries and was organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. “Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War,” is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center.
