HAVE A PAGEANT IN YOUR CLASSROOM
To help celebrate the birth
of the 16th President, Feb. 12, 2007, my 3rd Graders
are going to present their knowledge of the 16th
President's life while living at Springfield, Il.
The classes did a study, while in 2nd grade of the
President's childhood and life up through the move
into Illinois in 1830. Our city has a close
connection with the Lincolns, as Thomas and Sarah
Bush lived in close proximity to our city at what is
now called Lincoln Log Cabin Historical Site. We
are also the site of a Lincoln-Douglas Debate.
Abraham's wife and children never visited
Charleston, as far as we know. Abraham was a
regular visitor as lawyer and uncle to several
nieces and nephews, and cousin Dennis Hanks.
