Springfield, Illinois

Lincoln’s tomb is commemorated by a beautiful copy of the Lincoln memorial. You can walk inside the memorial, and actually see the tomb of Abe Lincoln as well. Outside around the memorial, are copies of all Abraham Lincoln statues that are around the country. On top of that, there are quite a few plaques that you can go around and read, learning more about Lincoln’s personal life and his family. Every now and then, they have a flag lowering ceremony that is wonderful to attend. Although his tomb is in a ceremony, his tomb and memorial is not hard to find and is easy to get to as long as you follow the signs.
