Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Sat): contemplate the long history of Lincoln Memorial Garden, examine the collection at Illinois State Museum, steep yourself in history at Old State Capitol, then steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, and finally see the interesting displays at Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Museum. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, then make a trip to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Illinois State Capitol.
