Clickable Word Clouds

Word clouds offer visual representations of word usage in various types of documents. The bigger the word appears in the cloud, the more frequently you will find it in the text. Here are some examples of word clouds involving Lincoln’s documents that we have actually made “clickable” so that you can move from the image directly to the excerpt where they appear and then ultimately to the full text of the document itself.
