Lincoln in Illinois: The River Man
Rock Springs Nature Center
Sat, Aug 11, 2018
Guest speaker Don Chamberlain explains how rivers and creeks played important roles in Lincoln’s life from his boyhood days to his adulthood. From a near-death experience as a child, working on the Ohio River, freezing his feet crossing the Sangamon River, journeying to New Orleans twice by flatboat, and more, these episodes shaped him in various ways.
