Onward into Illinois Young Abraham Lincoln

Ever wonder what the Lincoln family wagon train looked like? Here is a depiction of that family's journey as they crossed from Vincennes, Indiana into Illinois. This 1938 dedicated monument is on the west bank of the Wabash River while the huge George Rogers Clark memorial is on the Vincennes side.  The DAR sponsored tribute to Lincoln shows the family on the move in 1830 guided by the spirit in the sky representing Abe's departed mother.
