The Smithsonian American Art Museum will open a new Abraham Lincoln exhibition on March 6, 2008. The exhibition will feature artifacts and displays about Lincoln's second inaugural ball, which was held in the building which now houses the museum on March 6, 1865.
The exhibition will relate the ball to the building and its history. Items to be on exhibit will include invitations to the ball and a menu from it as well.
