SPRINGFIELD -- WSEC-TV/PBS
Springfield is airing "Lincoln
Stories," a five-part series on Abraham Lincoln's life and
times in central Illinois. The program, hosted by Mark McDonald, was
produced with assistance of the Abraham Lincoln Association and a
grant from the Illinois Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
Episode one of "Lincoln Stories"
depicts what Abraham Lincoln's life was like in New Salem.
Living history interpreters explain how he evolved from shopkeeper
to postmaster to store owner to deputy county surveyor, while
studying law for his future political career.
