Please join us tomorrow at 6:00 pm in the auditorium of the main library for the opening of Lincoln: The Constitution and The Civil War. Our guest speaker for the evening is Orville Vernon Burton, Ph.D. Dr. Burton is Creativity Professor of Humanities, Professor of History, Sociology, and Computer Science at Clemson University, and the Director of the Clemson CyberInstitute. His 2007 work, THE AGE OF LINCOLN won the Chicago Tribune Heartland Literary Award for Nonfiction and was selected for Book of the Month Club, History Book Club, and Military Book Club. One reviewer proclaimed, “If the Civil War era was America's ‘Iliad,’ then historian Orville Vernon Burton is our latest Homer.” Dr. Burton’s lecture, “Lincoln and Liberty,” will address the changes made to the Constitution during this tumultuous time in American history. The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized the exhibit with the help of a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH): great ideas brought to life. The traveling exhibition is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center. ... See MoreSee Less
