Freshly open at the New York Historical Society, Lincoln and New York focuses on exactly what you might expect. The exhibition explores the connection between Abe and the great metropolis, allowing for discussion of Civil War politics and public feeling in a New York context. Additionally, the argument for the influence of New York media on Lincoln’s election is posed and well documented.
