Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.

On the 24th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get to know the fascinating history of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, then steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, then stroll the grounds of Camp Butler National Cemetery, and finally experience rural life at Apple Barn.
