After leaving St. Louis late in the evening, Springfield, Il was a convenient place to stop for the night, and we really wanted to visit Abraham Lincoln’s house.
It was certainly worth the visit. Our 16th president was certainly a great man, and it was very interesting to gain some insight into his life. His farewell address to the people of Springfield as he left for the presidency was especially moving.
After touring the house and learning more about the man, we headed down to a park to have lunch and debrief before heading for home.
