Lunch and Learn - Lincoln’s Two Trips between Springfield and Washington  presented by author Guy Fraker

In February 1861 Lincoln left Springfield on his long circuitous route to Washington. In April 1865 Lincoln’s body returned on the same route to Central Illinois. Fraker’s talk contrasts the two trips. The return to Springfield detoured from Indiana to Chicago and passed through Bloomington’s 8th Circuit on May 3, 1865. Fraker is the author of Lincoln’s Ladder to the Presidency The Eight Judicial Circuit.
