The Roads That Lead to Lincoln at Warrenville V.F.W. Hall, 3S371 Mignin Drive

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Warrenville Public Library District
Historian Dave Clark takes a whimsical look at the impact Lincoln has made on our culture, from businesses such as Lincoln Towing and Lincoln Insurance, to cars such as the Lincoln Continental. Then he traces the major events of Lincoln's life from his arrival in Illinois in 1830 through his departure to Washington D.C. as President-elect in 1861.  A significant portion of the program details the Funeral Train that brought Lincoln's remains back from Washington D.C. to Springfield, Illinois April 21 – May 3, 1865. Clark will also discuss the Inaugural Train of February – March 1861. Many of the places Lincoln visited as President-elect on his way east from Illinois to Washington D.C. would become stops on the somber return journey four years later. 

In the final section of the presentation, Clark takes us on a virtual tour along Route 66, the 8th Judicial Circuit, the Great River Road and the Lincoln Highway in search of sites related to the life of Abraham Lincoln. The tour includes images of the places visited by Lincoln, as well as monuments and museums dedicated to his legacy. The tour includes both well-known sites, such as New Salem State Park, and unmarked historic locations, such as the places where Mary Todd Lincoln lived in Chicago. The emphasis is on the places that travelers can visit to better understand Lincoln while enjoying the historic highways of Illinois.

This program is presented in association with the Warrenville Historical Society. Refreshments served at 6:30 p.m.; program begins at 7 p.m. Registration required.
