The Great Debate on Lincoln 

Why is there an endless deluge of books and articles still published on Abraham Lincoln? Because the man is endlessly fascinating. Now add to all that Lincolnalia the impressive new traveling exhibition Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War, which opens Friday, August 1, at the University City Public Library (6701 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-727-3150 or www.ucitylibrary.org). The show is arranged thematically and parceled into sections; its final aim is not to simplify the debates still swirling around Lincoln's unhesitating use of the executive branch, but to present highly complex issues and allow attendees to arrive at their own conclusions. Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War is free and open to the public daily through Tuesday, September 2.
