REMEMBERING ABRAHAM LINCOLN
IN HIS HOME TOWN
On a recent business trip to Springfield, Illinois,
I stopped by the new Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library.
Definitely worth a visit!
The galleries, displays and theaters
bring his legacy to life.
Recreations of his family life, triumphs and ordeals,
including the Emancipation Proclamation,
the Civil War years, the Gettysburg Address
and his assassination.
This museum brings his torrential presidency
and family to life.
(A visit to his tomb at the nearby Oak Ridge
cemetery completed my emotional visit.)
