Abraham Lincoln’s Crossroads is a classroom activity designed to support the National Constitution Center’s online game of the same name and the nationally touring exhibition “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War.” The online game is intended for advanced middle- and high-school students. It invites them to learn about Lincoln’s leadership by exploring the political choices he made. An animated Lincoln introduces a situation, asks for advice, and prompts players to decide the issue for themselves before learning the actual outcome.
