History Comes Alive with Mark Sorensen
Mark Sorensen will be the guest speaker at the Autumn presentation of “History Comes Alive” at the Mansion. The subject of his talk will be “Lincoln’s First Illinois Homestead.” In the early 1830s, Abraham Lincoln and his family squatted on land on the north bank of the Sangamon
River west of Decatur. Why did the Lincoln’s come here and how did
they spend that year? Mark and the newly formed “Friends of Lincoln
Trail Homestead State Park” will explain what the Lincoln’s did here,
why they left, and what plans have been made to restore and enhance
the state park at the Lincoln Homestead site. A reception will follow and
is open to the public.
