This semester, the Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois, is offering free admission to students. This is a world-class museum that masterfully tells the story of one of the most significant time periods in US history, centered around one of our best known presidents, Abraham Lincoln. Learn about how a self-educated young man, who was born in a one-room log cabin, became a lawyer, and eventually, was elected President of the United States. Uncover the tragic social injustices in America’s early development. Discover how President Lincoln, through the four bloody agonizing years of the American Civil War, turned a nation toward a new day, abolished the institution of slavery, and preserved the union of its 36 states. Learn about of the principles and providence that guided his path.

Join IFI’s group tour of the museum on April 13th. We will depart the Vineyard parking lot at 1500 N. Lincoln Avenue in Urbana at 11:00 as a group. Transportation will be provided for those who need it. Bring your own sack lunch and snacks to eat on the trip to Springfield. There are no restaurant options in the museum. We must enter the museum as a group and, therefore, we must all arrive together. Transportation will be provide for those who need it. Masks are required. Be sure to get your Covid test results right before the event if you have access to the U of I’s testing service. Reservations for our group must be made in advance, so please sign up real soon – April 1st is the deadline to sign up or to cancel!
