Four scores and seven innings ago. On President's Day, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum shifted its focus to a Civil War with much smaller stakes, the the rivalry between Cubs and Cardinals fans in Illinois.
State Historian Samuel Wheeler says the exhibit will debut March 24th. He says the new exhibit will feature interactive fun that will allow rival fans to make their mark.
Wheeler says baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and both organizations are giving the exhibit a boost.
The exhibit will remain open through the rest of the year. Items featured will include a cap worn by Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood, the second-base bag stolen by Lou Brock to break the modern record for steals in a season, gear worn by Albert Pujols, Sammy Sosa, Rogers Hornsby, Fergie Jenkins, and much more.
