Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War


Abraham Lincoln’s struggle to save the Union transformed the Constitution and created the nation we are today. 150 years later, as we commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, Norwalk Community College invites you to explore our nation’s unfinished work and the continuing questions of tensions among the states, the meaning of equality, and the protection of civil liberties in times of crisis.



 Visit the National Constitution Center’s traveling exhibition Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War, administered by the American Library Association and funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, at NCC’s Everett I.L. Baker Library.

Learn about Connecticut’s past and present by reading the One Book One Region selection Connecticut in the American Civil War.


Take advantage of NCC’s public talks by prominent scholars and our exhibition of never-before-displayed items from the Fromson Collection.

Continue your exploration as public libraries and historical societies around the region present a series of performances and programs about Lincoln, the Constitution, and the Civil War.

Choose your own route and EXPLORE.
