Lincoln Treasures Grace Sacramento

Would you like to look at the bible used by Abraham Lincoln at his 1861 inauguration and by Barack Obama at his inauguration this January? Or some of the items Lincoln was carrying in his pocket on the night he was shot at Ford's Theatre? How about an original playbill for that night's play - Our American Cousin - with a real bloodstain?

Ok - you get my point: you need to see the exhibit With Malice Towards None: The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Exhibition. This wonderful Library of Congress exhibit, on a five-city tour, is currently on display at the California Museum at 10th and O Streets in Sacramento. It will only be there until August 22nd, so be sure to get in to see it before it's gone!
