Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
On the 19th (Wed), appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, then see the interesting displays at Illinois State Museum, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Illinois State Capitol. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 20th (Thu): get advice or help at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Union Square Park, then get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, then contemplate the long history of Lincolns New Salem State Park, and finally make a trip to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 82°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
