Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
On the 17th (Mon), steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, make a trip to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, then take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and finally see the interesting displays at Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, then get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, and then get a sense of history and politics at Illinois State Capitol.
