We’re off on a one day motorcycle trip to Springfield to visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. It’s supposed to be great weather here in the Midwest this weekend, though a tad chilly as we leave about 6 am. We should be back late this evening (Saturday).
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library is the premier repository for materials relating to the history of the Prairie State. The Illinois State Historical Library was created in 1889 by the Illinois General Assembly, which charged the new library with collecting and preserving "books, pamphlets, manuscripts, monographs, writings, and other materials of historical interest and useful to the historian, bearing upon the political, religious, or social history of the State of Illinois from the earliest known period of time."
