The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library is proud to present the traveling exhibit “Lincon in Kansas.” The exhibit details Abraham Lincoln’s lone visit to Kansas in 1859 and the lasting influence his trip had on the Sunflower State. In December 1859, Lincoln came to Kansas campaigning for the presidency, touring several towns in the northeast during a week-long visit. The eventual 16th president visited Elwood, Troy, Doniphan, Atchison and Leavenworth. The exhibit also chronicles his life and legacy from his re-election campaign to the Kansas connections of John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, and Boston Corbett, who killed Booth. "Lincoln in Kansas" is open to the public for the entire month of April. For more information, contact the SCCC/ATS Library at (620) 417-1160. Regular library hours are: Mon-Thurs: 7:45 a.m to 10 p.m. Fri : 7:45 a.m to 4:45 p.m. Sat : CLOSED Sun: 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. “Lincoln in Kansas” was produced by the Kansas Historical Society and is part of the Kansas Interpretive Traveling Exhibits Service
