Local Washington, D.C., area news reports indicate that a cottage once used by President Abraham Lincoln, who spent 25 percent of his presidency there, will host a new Civil War exhibit with rare artifacts, says WUSA TV 9 and The Washington Post. The cottage is located on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home, and will feature an exhibit called “Seat of War.”
The exhibit is expected to demonstrate what war was like in Washington, D.C. The exhibit runs through Jan. 15, 2012. If you’re in the DC-area and go to the exhibit, we’d love to hear from you and post your photos (if they allow those).
