Reminders of a rich and remarkable history mix with the everyday whirl of modern politics in Springfield, the Illinois state capital and home of America's 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. A tour of the area's Lincoln sites sheds light on the Great Emancipator's pre-politics legal career, his local roots and his path to the White House. Springfield is a working, welcoming town offering visitors many cultural and recreational diversions, but almost 140 years after his death, Honest Abe is still the city's main man.
