Abraham Lincoln Home In Springfield Paper Model - by Illinois History


The Real Thing
Abraham and Mary Lincoln’s sons Edward, William, and Thomas (“Tad”) were born in the house on Eighth Street in Springfield. Sadly Edward also died while the family lived there. The Lincoln’s oldest son Robert, while born at the Globe, also grew up in this house. The 1858 Senate race and associated debates brought Lincoln national prominence and helped win him the 1860 Republican presidential nomination. After winning the election, the Lincolns left this home on February 11, 1861, for Washington DC. Lincoln never returned to his home. Today it is a fully restored National Historic Site owned and managed by the U.S. National Park Service and is open daily to the public for guided tours.

Os filhos de Abraham e Mary Lincoln, Edward, William e Thomas nasceram na casa daEighth Street, em Springfield. Infelizmente Edward morreu, enquanto a família morava lá. Os debates no Senado, sobre racismo em 1858, deram à Lincoln destaque nacional e ajudou-o a tornar-se presidente em 1860. Depois de vencer a eleição, os Lincoln deixaram esta casa em 11 de fevereiro de 1861 e foram para Washington DC. Lincoln nunca mais voltou para sua casa. Hoje ela é um patrimônio histórico nacional totalmente restaurado e está aberto diariamente ao público para visitas guiadas.
