  All Day Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War   The deadliest weapon of the Civil War was one that nobody could see, killing two soldiers for every one felled by gunfire. The extraordinary casualties caused by that invisible killer, disease; the conventional weapons used to create slaughter on an unprecedented scale; horrific injuries suffered on the battlefield; and the heroic efforts of medical personnel to treat soldiers on both sides are described in detail in “To Kill and to Heal: Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War,” a new exhibit runs through 2013 at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield. To Kill and to Heal: Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War” opens about a month after the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh, the first Civil War battle with massive casualties on a scale that indicated what the remaining years of the war would bring. Glenna Schroeder-Lein is the curator, and she worked closely with an exhibits team consisting of John Malinak, Michael Casey, Carla Smith, Katie Grant, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation, staff from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, and numerous community groups, institutions, and individuals to create the exhibit. The experiences of actual soldiers are prevalent throughout the exhibit, including quotes and photographs, lending a human touch to the horror of war. Some of the images come from original medical files and graphically depict the effects of deadly weapons and even deadlier germs on the bodies of Union and Confederate soldiers. Paid admission to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum is required to view the exhibit. Admission prices are $12 for adults, $9 for senior citizens, and $6 for children. A special admission rate of $5 is available to those who want to visit only the new exhibit. For more information, visit www.presidentlincoln.org.

  9:00AM 5:55PM Gettysburg Address goes on display   One of the most famous documents in United States history goes back on display at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 1 through 5 p.m. Tuesday, September 4 in the Treasures Gallery at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield. Paid Museum admission is required to view the document. The handwritten manuscript of the Gettysburg Address was last publicly displayed at the Museum during Lincoln’s Birthday observances February 9 – 13, 2012. There are five original handwritten versions of the Gettysburg Address. Two incomplete ones are in the Library of Congress, a finished one is at Cornell University, and the only one he signed and dated is in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum’s copy, written at the request of Edward Everett, the main speaker on November 19, 1863 at the Gettysburg Cemetery dedication, came to the State of Illinois in 1944 thanks to the contributions of pennies by Illinois schoolchildren plus a donation by department store magnate Marshall Field III. Illinois’s copy contains the two famous additional words “under God” that Lincoln had not included in his two original draft copies. Displayed nearby will be an original 1880 letter written by Thomas Edison, never before shown, in which the famed inventor praises Lincoln's greatness. Beginning on September 5, a signed copy of the Emancipation Proclamation will go on display through January 2013. This display will mark the 150th anniversary of the presidential order that freed all slaves in rebel-held territory. The Gettysburg Address and Emancipation Proclamation are part of the 52,000-item Lincoln Collection at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Pieces from the collection are displayed on a rotating basis in the Museum’s Treasures Gallery, and range from the earliest known document written by Lincoln to items belonging to his wife and children.
