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.
