Lincoln's Hat
Presented by: President Lincoln's Cottage
As a young man, Abraham Lincoln began forming ideas on issues of justice and freedom. As he grew, so too did his ideas. While living at his Cottage, President Lincoln thought through his ideas on the Civil War and emancipation, and turned these ideas into action. In Lincoln’s Hat, Lincoln’s unique note-taking practice serves as a model to students as they develop their own creative ideas and problem solving skills on everyday decisions and complex issues. Students will discover President Lincoln’s unique habit of storing his ideas inside his signature stovepipe hat, and a hands-on activity provides students a special place to keep their own ideas.

Lincoln's Toughest Decisions: Debating Emancipation
Presented by: President Lincoln's Cottage
Abraham Lincoln solved the difficult problems of his time by consulting the ideas of those around him, thus informing his own thought process. This approach serves as a model for students to develop their own decision-making skills as they strive to understand the power of their ideas in modern society. In Lincoln’s Toughest Decisions: Debating Emancipation — an award-winning program that puts students in the role of historical people with a stake in the decision on emancipation — students use touch screen monitors to explore historical documents and recreate the heated discussions that President Lincoln and others had over emancipation.
