Students help to remember Lincoln and Civil War history

To the editor:

We would like to acknowledge the State Bank of Lincoln, the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society, and Ms. Marla Williams and her fifth-grade class at Northwest.

On Oct. 16, 2013, exactly 155 years after Abraham Lincoln gave his 1858 speech, approximately 40 social studies students toured State Bank on Sangamon Street and the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society. We would like to commend the students for their excellent behavior and their interest and intrigue in the artifacts and history they learned about on that day as it connected with their current Civil War studies.

The field trip was sponsored by the Abraham Lincoln Statue Committee, which is working with young people in educational endeavors and fundraising projects. It is the committee's wish that students will be a part of history-making as they assist in helping to raise funds to erect the life-size bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln on the Logan County Courthouse lawn.

Thank you to those who assisted Ms. Williams and for your support of these young people. We truly enjoyed them and their enthusiastic efforts in learning about Lincoln, Ill., history.
