Here in the Land 0 Lincoln, we have Disney North. I do not mean disrespect, but I grow weary of Lincoln and the Diety he has become. Criticism of the man is NOT allowed.
The museum is very nicely done, and uses 21st century technology to tell the story. We are given the opportunity to see a battle scene, then the seats shake, cannon smoke is everywhere, the noise is deafening..it really is Disney at its best. Disney designed a lot of it.
In another exhibit, The Ghost of The Library, we are treated to acting and animation in a facinating way..I will not spoil the plot...come see it for yourself...the Young Lincoln exhibit is every stereotype you have ever read about learning by firelight. One of the best exhibits is the White House kitchen...a subject most don't think about, but the very best is the casket scene...YOu actually believe you are in the presence of the body. People get very quiet, talk is hushed, just like at a wake...darndest thing you ever saw.
One thing I disagree with very much is that they have Booth dressed in a long Gray coat.. the subtle statement is that he was a confederate and that is simply not true... question them about it and the answer is "it is just a gray coat" (wink..wink)...that burns my Bu**
the treatment of the war is pretty good...they have a map that shows the war in 2 minutes or so and a TV newscast with Tim Russert describing the 1860 candidates much like it was 2008... war is predicted...
