Know Your Lincoln

When: Tue., April 26 2011

If you're thinkin' you know everything there is to know about Abraham Lincoln, think again. Drawing from its extensive collection of Lincoln memorabilia and artifacts, the Western Reserve Historical Society has crafted a detailed exhibition on the life and times of the 16th President, especially as it relates to his connections with Cleveland. At the heart of the exhibit is a quiz to test your knowledge. No cheating allowed, but questions might include things like "Who was Salmon Chase?" and "What was Lincoln's occupation before he came into office?" Overall, this will be the biggest Lincoln remembrance the city has known since April 28, 1865, when his funeral train rolled into town at 6:55 a.m. Admission, which includes access to the history museum and the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, is $8.50 for adults and less for seniors, veterans, and kids. The exhibition continues through December 31. For more information, call 216-721-5722 or go to wrhs.org. The museum is at 10825 East Blvd. in University Circle. — Niehaus
