I don't know how many of you have been to visit the Abraham Lincoln home in Springfield, Illinois but it's a must see for any Lincoln/Civil War fan. I would love to go there once a year and starting next year, I am going there and to the Presidential Library as well. It's a fun two day getaway as I live just about four and a half hours away.
I was digging through some stuff about the Lincoln home and found this interesting article about decorating the Lincoln home for Christmas. Being a big fan of the home and the Lincolns, it's always interesting to see how they did things when they occupied the residence. I found this article pretty interesting. It has a nice Christmas feel to it and gives you some insight into the holidays and the Lincolns. I have included the link to it below. This article is more generalized as to what the holiday's were like in that period as opposed to just what they were like in the mid 1860's. It's a fun little article.
What was your favorite part of the story? I like the part that talked about what kind of food they would have during the holiday season.
