Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
On the 15th (Sun), contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, then look for all kinds of wild species at Lincoln Memorial Garden, then get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and finally appreciate the history behind Lauterbach Giant.
