A presentation by Lincoln historian Gary Kersey from Wilmington, Ohio takes place in the Statehouse Atrium. Kersey discusses the legacy Lincoln left for America and displays artifacts that he has collected through the years. Kersey's artifacts include Lincoln's cane that purportedly was made from the wood of his log cabin, Lincoln campaign medals and Lincoln's pocket watch. Kersey will also bring a life mask and cast of Lincoln's hands, allowing each guest the opportunity to see Lincoln as he would have appeared in person.
