Lincoln's Home





The top photo of the Lincoln home was taken during the summer of 1860 and features Lincoln and his son Willie, standing together behind the fence. 148 years later in the summer of 2008 my son and I replicate the father and son photo from Lincoln's Springfield home.

Lincoln had a short walk to his law office which was located across the street from the old state capitol. Here are some photos. My earliest rememberance of Abraham Lincoln's life as a lawyer comes from the 1939 John Ford classic Young Mr. Lincoln about the early life and legal career of the president.
