May 15-June 19, "Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War"

10 am - 5 pm, CNY Living History Center, 4386 US Rt. 11 (Homer Ave.). Cortland County Historical Society opens a new national traveling exhibition which focuses on Abraham Lincoln’s struggle to meet the constitutional challenges of the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln was elected the sixteenth President of the United States in 1860, at a time when the nation was falling apart. By the time he took the oath of office, seven states had already seceded from the Union. The exhibition vividly evokes Lincoln’s struggle to resolve the basic questions that divided Americans at the most perilous moment in the nation’s history: Was the United States truly one nation, or was it a confederacy of sovereign and separate states? How could a country founded on the belief that “all men are created equal” tolerate slavery? In a national crisis, would civil liberties be secure? The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized the exhibit with the help of a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Cortland County Historical Society is offering free programs and other events for the public in connection with the exhibition. For more information call Mindy Leisenring at (607) 756-6071, e-mail info@cortlandhistory.com, visit www.cortlandhistory.com or Facebook Event page.

May 30, "The New York Volunteer: Songs and Stories of the Civil War"

1-2 pm, CNY Living History Center, 4386 US Rt. 11 (Homer Ave.), Cortland. A lecture by Linda Russell hosted by Cortland County Historical Society at CNY Living History Center. This presentation looks at New York's involvement in the Civil War through eyewitness accounts - letters, diaries and songs. A girl writes of soldiers being recruited in her town. A young man fears he may not come home alive. These accounts offer personal perspectives of New Yorkers in the face of war. Songs like the Battle Cry of Freedom and Just Before the Battle give musical voice to these experiences and concerns. Other songs examine New York issues and regiments: Tunes of the Irish Brigade, parlor ballads and soldiers' ditties. New York songwriters also contributed to the cause, including Brooklyn's Henry Tucker who wrote Weeping Sad and Lonely and Ethel Lynn Beers whose All Quiet Along the Potomac was sung by both sides. The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized the exhibit with the help of a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH): great ideas brought to life. The traveling exhibition is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center. Free admission.
