This year marks the 150th anniversary of the famous Lincoln-Douglas Debates, which is especially cool since the last remaining site of one of these debates is here in Galesburg. There is a statewide Lincoln focus this year, and part of the celebration included Lincoln himself visiting some of the Knox Scenic Drive sites last weekend. We got to meet him at the Scarecrow Festival. We'd taught Caleb a few things about him, and he was very impressed. We also got to visit a really neat travelling museum decicated to Lincoln. Of course I loved every minute, as I've always loved everything about Lincoln. I can't wait until the boys are older and we can study even more. I've heard the museum in Springfield is pretty awesome.
