“Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” a traveling exhibition opening at Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) on Thursday, March 22 in Wythe Hall on the Hampton campus, examines how President Abraham Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the Civil War, the secession of Southern states, slavery and wartime civil liberties. The exhibit is free and open to the public and encourages visitors to form a nuanced view of Lincoln by engaging them with Lincoln’s struggle to reconcile his policy preferences with basic American ideals of liberty and equality. TNCC will complement the exhibit with several special programs.

Thomas Nelson will celebrate the exhibit opening with three programs featuring Lincoln interpreter Dennis Boggs at 10:00 a.m., noon and 2:00 p.m. on March 22 in Wythe Hall. Boggs performs nationally for all age groups and has presented his program in conjunction with this exhibit in other locations across the country.

On Monday, March 26 at 2:00 p.m., Christopher Phillips, Williamsburg author of “Constitution Café,” will challenge the audience to think about Lincoln’s Constitutional interpretations in “Constitution Café – An Anecdote for Today’s Uncivil Wars?” The town hall meeting style discussion will be held in the Dr. Mary T. Christian Auditorium, Templin Hall on the Hampton campus.
