In Lincoln's office in Washington, he often sat at his desk, with the only light coming from the single window in the room.

In the midst of a war, he pondered often what was happening on the battlefront.

In this unique and beautiful display in the museum, visitors have the opportunity to see the room and perhaps enter into Lincoln's thoughts as he worries over the soldiers.

The room is divided into two parts: one part the office, but in front of the desk is a scene inside an army tent: a table, a cot and a lantern  the place Civil War commanders called home.
