Lincoln, Lincoln & More Lincoln!

Springfield, Illinois, is where Abraham lived prior to becoming the 16th President of the United States. He left from the local train depot and unfortunately, never had an opportunity to return prior to being assassinated.

The photos were taken between July 6th and July 8th of 2006
