More Lincoln Civil War-Era Documents Added to Collection


Nearly 150 years after his death, more authentic Abraham Lincoln documents continue to be added to the collection of his papers and writings.

 

The latest finds come from the University of Alabama, which received them in a collection of American memorabilia donated to the school by a Birmingham businessman.

 

The two Civil War era documents show Lincoln taking action regarding pending treason trials of Baltimore officials, and taking steps to secure the release of seized rifles so they could be used in the war effort.

 

One historian says it shows just how involved Lincoln was in every aspect of the running of the war.
