More than 3,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students unite to make up the small and prestigious Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee's scenic Cumberland Gap. Located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountain range, Lincoln Memorial University takes advantage of its proximity to nature, offering academic majors such as wildlife and fisheries management alongside its traditional liberal arts curriculum.Lincoln Memorial University has garnered international renown for its Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum, which contains the world's third largest collection of items previously belonging to Abraham Lincoln. The museum also houses a large amount of Civil War memorabilia.During the late 1800s, Colonel Alexander Arthur purchased the land that now houses Lincoln Memorial University. Joined eight years later by Congregational minister Reverend A. A. Myers and General Oliver. O Howard, Arthur established Lincoln Memorial University in recognition of former president Abraham Lincoln. Howard felt a particular compulsion to help create the college after a personal conversation he had had with the president, who expressed a desire to repay the residents of East Tennessee who had fought for the Union during the Civil War, breaking from the majority of the secessionist state.Today, Lincoln Memorial University remains well known for its literary history, exhibited particularly during its annual Mountain Heritage Literary Festival, which has taken place every year since 2005. Some of the region's most highly regarded authors, including Earl Hamner Jr., Sheila Kay Adams, Denise Giardina, and Lee Smith have their life's work featured during the festival.Notable alumni of Lincoln Memorial University include civil rights activist Don West; Museum of Appalachia founder John Rice Irwin; famed bluegrass musician Ralph Stanley; and pastor and Kingdom Outlook director Shawn Baker.
