Browse items in the Lincoln Sheet Music Collection
Sheet music from the Lincoln Collection of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library celebrating and commemorating the life of Abraham Lincoln. The collection also includes a number of songs covering other Civil War subjects, as well as minstrel songs.

Visitors should be warned that some songs contain racially offensive language and imagery. These items are examples of the stereotypical nineteeth century dipiction of African Americans and other minorities.
