Before Abraham Lincoln came to Springfield, Ill. he lived in New Salem. This is where he studied to be a lawyer and where he worked. The town died but has been reconstructed in the area where it once stood. It is a very interesting place to visit. Unfortunately the day we were there the temperature was over 95 degrees and humid!!
