Fire up the Lincoln and head out on a road trip with our 16th President as he visits 3 unique Lincoln Sites in Central IL Saturday, September 6, 2014.  From 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Lincoln will be at the Bryant Cottage State Historic Site in Bement, and from 2-4:30 p.m. at Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site near Lerna, and from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. he will visit Vandalia State House State Historic Site in Vandalia.

Experience the Land of Lincoln through its rich fall colors painted across a rural landscape much unchanged from Lincoln’s day as you journey along with the president on his visit to three historic sites.  While in Bement Lincoln will greet visitors at the Bryant Cottage to reminisce about his campaign against Stephen Douglas for the U.S. Senate seat in 1858.  Join Lincoln again in the afternoon at Lincoln Log Cabin for an intimate look at Lincoln’s extended family.  Join Lincoln the same evening from 7 p.m- 9 p.m. at the Vandalia State House as he recounts early years in the Illinois Legislature.
