History Comes Alive

June 1 - August 10, 2020

Imagine stepping back in time to the Springfield that Abraham Lincoln knew before he became president. What was it like to be one of his neighbors? What kind of games did the kids play? What was the music like in the 1850's? how on earth did everyone get by without the Internet? Or even a telephone?!
