This material was developed for educators who have the opportunity to visit the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois or are simply interested in the Museum exhibits. Created by Teaching with Primary Sources at Eastern Illinois University, this site lists exhibit areas within the Museum and an image of a digitized primary sources from the Library of Congress American Memory Collection that you may wish to use in your classroom prior to or following a visit to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum. These images were selected for their relevance to the exhibits and as a means to intrigue students and bring the life and times of our 16th President into your classroom. American Memory is a multimedia web site of digitized historical documents, photographs, sound recordings, moving pictures, books, pamphlets, maps and other resources form the Library of Congress’s vast holdings.

We have all heard the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words.” For schools with technology tools and teachers that are aware of the different learning styles of students, multimedia is an integrated part of education. By offering instruction through differentiated means, educators can reach more students in ways that will engage and hopefully trigger a desire to learn more. Textbooks chronicle historic facts and often focus on well-known data, Diaries, journals, memoirs, reminiscences, letters, speeches and interviews can offer a glimpse into the private lives, thoughts, hopes, and goals of lesser-known people and places providing a snapshot of life at that time.
