Land of Lincoln

US for Palin 2011/08/14 20:06:06

We
had a wonderful morning touring the Lincoln Presidential Library and
Museum in Springfield, Illinois. About a year ago, I was honored to give
a speech before the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. for the
Restoring Honor Rally. Standing in the shadow of that massive monument
to the Great Emancipator might make one forget that this heroic leader
came from very humble beginnings in what was considered at the time a
very remote part of the country. In fact, the east coast establishment
long dismissed Lincoln as just a frontier political figure, and he never
really won over that establishment. But it was as a "prairie lawyer" in
Springfield that Lincoln honed the oratory and debate skills he used to
persuade and inspire his fellow Americans in freeing the slaves and
preserving our Union. These heartland roots are what made him who he
was.

It was truly inspiring to learn more about this great man
from those who tend to his legacy with such devotion. We learned a
wealth of information about the Civil War, the Emancipation
Proclamation, and Lincoln’s life. Many thanks to the professional staff,
volunteers, and historians at the Lincoln Presidential Library and
Museum for all they do to preserve this important aspect of American
history and educate future generations.
