LINCOLN MUSEUM FLAWED LEADER

A visitor pauses to looks at a mural dipicting the Attack on Fort Sumter inside the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, Ill., Thursday, March 24 2005. The new Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, opening in his hometown next week, doesn't sugarcoat Lincoln's record. Lincoln repeatedly and unilaterally suspended the writ of habeas corpus, the doctrine that people under arrest have the right to a judge's review of whether their detention is proper. Some historians believe thatwhen the U.S. chief justice ruled that Congress must approve such suspensions, Lincoln briefly ordered his arrest. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)
