Our Classic 55 Club spent Thursday, June 14, in Springfield Illinois with local guide and historian, Linda Koenig, who gave us an in-depth look at the life of Abraham Lincoln.
We visited the Old State Capitol. It has been beautifully restored and we had an amazing local tour guide giving the history of all the pieces and relaying many interesting stories of people and events that happened there.
Next, we visited the Oak Ridge Cemetery to visit Lincoln’s Family Tomb. Our Local guide was well versed on Lincoln history as he gave us a tour of the family tomb. Interestingly, the tomb housed a smaller replica of the Washington DC Lincoln statue, very impressive. You will notice an outdoor statue of Lincoln’s head and it is believed that if you rub his nose you will have good luck.
Lastly, we visited the Lincoln presidential library and museum. This museum was open in 2005 and has an interesting mix of interactive theater presentations with real-life action and sound along with impressive scenes from through-out his life.
It was an amazing trip!
