The audio tour allows history lovers of all ages to listen in on the New York of Lincoln’s time as they examine the documents, photographs, paintings and artifacts that tell this tale. Listen to the crowd at Cooper Union as you stand behind the lectern where Lincoln delivered the speech that propelled him towards the presidency, learn the story of the first Union officer killed in the Civil War as you look through the bullet hole in his uniform, and hear an eyewitness account of the Draft Riots from a 15-year old whose home was under attack.
