The Chicago History Museum opened two special exhibits on Saturday, which is the 202nd anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's birth.

The exhibits -- "Abraham Lincoln" and "Lincoln's Chicago" -- include photos, papers and other memorabilia of the 16th president.

Lincoln's gold watch is on display.

A drawing portrays his assassination as he and his wife watched a play.

Visitors to the museum can see the bed in which Lincoln died, and the handcuffs that were put on his assassin, actor John Wilkes Booth.
