The tombstones associated with the "Cast Iron Tombstone Trial" still exist in several cemeteries around Logan County. This tombstone in Turley Cemetery appears to be the one that's featured in the Lloyd Ostendorf painting of Abraham Lincoln with Judge David Davis. Re-enactments of the case tried by Lincoln begin tonight. The public is invited. See article.


Take time to get out to the fall festivals in Mount Pulaski and Atlanta today and tomorrow. See calendar page for details.
