Check out the Lincoln Museum dedicated today

CORRECT URL for Lincoln Museum

From: Moore, Karl KMoore@ILSOS.NET
DearMYRTLE,

Just a note to point you to the actual new Lincoln museum in Springfield, Illinois: the website address is: http://www.alplm.org/home.html
The Lincoln Museum in Fort Wayne, Indiana opened to the public in 1931. Their website is very interesting but not to be confused with the new Lincoln museum in Springfield, Illinois.
Sincerely,
Karl Moore
Illinois State Archives

DearMYRTLE,I believe the web site listed in your recent email message about the Lincoln Library was about two different libraries. The address you listed was for the museum in Ft. Wayne, Ind. The new library and museum just dedicated in Springfield, Ill. is:
www.alplm.org
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

Enjoy your emails with the ideas and suggestions.

DearREADERS,
You'll want to check out the Lincoln Museum dedicated today in Springfield, Illinois. The website is http://www.thelincolnmuseum.org 

From the Lincoln family album we read "Mary Todd was ambitious, politically sophisticated, and well educated. After she married Abraham Lincoln in 1842, the couple had four boys (one of whom died in 1850 at the age of three). Their marriage was tempestuous, due to her temper and his carelessness in domestic matters, but generally successful.

For the first year after the Lincoln family moved to Washington in 1861, Mary reveled in her role as First Lady, although she outran her financial resources managing the White House. Tragedy struck in February 1862, when her favorite son Willie died at the age of eleven."

There is much to be experienced by visiting the website. I believe the museum folks did an excellent job of attempting to translate the museum experience into an informational website.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt      :)
