A Mom's Guide to the Land of Lincoln
A somber stop
On our way out of Springfield, we stop at Lincoln's Tomb. A towering obelisk and statue announce the burial place. We walk through hushed marble halls.
Moms say Didn't realize that Lincoln was buried in Springfield, along with his wife, Mary, and three of his four sons. The 117-foot-tall tomb (left) has a rotunda and corridors containing Lincoln statues and plaques with excerpts from his speeches. This was moving and powerful, a real chance to reflect.
Kids say Serious and quiet inside. Great hills to roll down outside.
