LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WKBW) — Jim McGrath is a big fan of our 16th President. A Civil War historian and collector, Jim's Abraham Lincoln pieces are on display this month at Northwest Bank in Lockport. He says "They consider Washington the father of our country, but they consider Lincoln the savior of our country."

Jim has been collecting Civil War limited Edition prints and paintings for over twenty years. Most of his collection is stored in his Lockport home. He estimates that he has over a hundred and eighty prints. He shares his passion for that time period by speaking to various groups.

Jim's display at Northwest Bank in Lockport will be on view through the end of the month.
