March 19 – April 16, 2013 Location: Allan Daily High School, 220 N. Kenwood Street, Glendale, CA Exhibitions

Panel exhibition, with interpretive and educational materials, that explores images, especially cartoons, as a way of investigating Abraham Lincoln in the context of his times. These cartoons are vividly biting; they invite us to put aside twenty-first-century assumptions and look at events through the eyes of people living in the era. Among the highlights are a California printing of the Emancipation Proclamation signed by Abraham Lincoln and political cartoons relating to the election of 1860.
