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.
[to top of second column in this letter]
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.
