The Lincoln Bicentennial 1809-2009
Collinsville Library Center is hosting a Lincoln Exhibit
by enthusiast, Peggy Fitzpatrick
Every day during the month of February, you can come into the Collinsville Library Center and see the multitude of items on display that give you a rare feel for the era of Abraham Lincoln, our 16th President of the United States.
This year Abraham Lincoln would have been 200 years old this year - yet his ideas and mystique are as pertinent as ever.
Peggy Fitzpatrick has been collecting Lincoln items for nearly 20 years. Her hobby eventually turned into a collection of statues, busts, plates, coins, antique pins, and more. Come learn about our 16th president and re-examine what it means to be American.
