EXHIBIT –Digital Lincoln

TimemapIn 2009, to help commemorate the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth, the House Divided Project at Dickinson College partnered with the Journal of American History to create a web-based exhibit that would showcase ways that newly emerging digital tools could reshape the field of Lincoln scholarship.  The result was “Building the Digital Lincoln,” a site that included a digital mash up or timemap that pulled together Lincoln’s Collected Works, Papers, and Day-By-Day into one timeline & map interface, an interactive version of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates scrapbook, and a live hypergraph showing the Lincoln related nodes in the House Divided research engine.
