Curators from the Ohio Historical Society installing the "Buckeyes for Lincoln" exhibit at the Ohio State Library

Several items from the Ohio Historical Society’s Archives and Museum Collections are a part of the case exhibit “Buckeyes for Lincoln,” which features materials illustrating President Lincoln’s strong political ties to Ohio. In 1860 Ohio was one of the most populated, economically powerful, and politically influential states in the nation. Ohio’s political and military support was key to Abraham Lincoln’s election and his ability to wage war. Ohioans held positions in Lincoln’s cabinet and served as his top general.
