Abraham Lincoln: Portrayed in the Collections of the Indiana Historical Society
In 2003 the Indiana Historical Society acquired some eight hundred items from the Jack L. Smith Graphics Collection and the entire Daniel R. Weinberg Lincoln Conspirators Collection of photographs, manuscripts, newspapers, pamphlets, and books on the assassination, along with the one-of-a-kind original collodion wet-plate negative of Alexander Gardner's iconic photograph of Lincoln taken only days before his 1863 Gettysburg Address.These collections were added to the some three hundred major pieces of Lincolniana, including a handwritten page from the future president's childhood sum book, which the Society already owned.
