Hanging out with Abe...
Our favorite stop during our "mini vacation" was at the Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, Illinois. This was a fascinating journey with not only a very interesting person, but how his decisions impacted our country during the very critical time of the Civil War as well. I really appreciated how the museum was arranged and how it used high tech means to make you feel almost as though "you were there". In the photo above John Wilkes Booth cuts a dashing figure as a high society actor, hanging out just outside the White House.
Since we were only allowed to take photos in the atrium, we couldn't resist posing with the First Family.
If you ever have a chance to visit this museum I would highly recommend it. Take some tissues with you though.
