Exhibit focuses on Lincoln's image
PEORIA (AP) — You expect to see Abraham Lincoln on plaques, book covers, even postcards. Less so on bobble heads, cologne containers or bottles of wine.
Nevertheless, there sits Honest Abe's image on a host of unlikely items on display at the Metamora Courthouse State Historic Site set to through March.
The rotating exhibit with the mouthful of a title - "Lincoln's Image, Commanding, Comical and Kitsch: From the Utilitarian and Collectible to the Common and Cheesy" - tries to shed some light on the myriad ways the Civil War-era commander in chief still has a hold on the American imagination.
