SPRINGFIELD -- 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.
