An exhibition of more than 70 images by photographer Annie Leibovitz is set to open at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. The exhibition, titled ``Pilgrimage,'' features images of famous places and objects that Leibovitz captured on her travels. They include Yellowstone National Park, Elvis Presley's motorcycle and Emily Dickinson's only surviving dress. According to a news release from the Springfield museum, Lincoln plays a major role in the exhibition. Among the items Leibovitz photographed are the stovepipe hat and gloves Lincoln had with him the night of his assassination, and a handwritten copy of the Gettysburg Address. Her photo of Lincoln's blood-stained gloves was taken at the presidential museum. ``Pilgrimage'' is scheduled for Feb. 8 to Aug. 31. It's part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection.
