Lincoln exhibit opens

CORBIN — Special events marked the ribbon cutting for the traveling exhibition of “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” at Laurel County Public Library Monday. The exhibit remains open through Friday, Jan. 24

Henry Smith and Shirley Landen were among the members of the Laurel Home Guard that were asked to dress in period costumes for the official opening of the exhibit, which  details Lincoln’s struggles as the 16th president of the United States during the Civil War.

Betsy Smith of Cynthiana played Emilie Todd Helm in a Chautauqua performance of Emilie Todd Helm’s “Rebel in the White House.” Kentucky Humanities Chautauqua gives historical presentations of characters from history, traveling throughout the state, and Emilie Todd Helm is one of the many vibrant characters portrayed by Kentucky’s Chautauqua performers. Emilie was the sister of Mary Todd Lincoln and the wife of Confederate General Benjamin Hardin Helm. Emilie had a front-row view of the history during and after the Civil War. She and her husband knew the Lincolns very well, and she attended many Confederate reunions, where she was hailed as the mother of the Orphan Brigade.
