Springfield became the Illinois state capital in 1837 with the help of a young lawyer and politician named Abraham Lincoln. He lived in the city until he left to become the 16th President of the United States, in 1861. From that moment on, the city's history and future have been inexorably tied to this most famous and beloved American citizen. From Lincoln's New Salem, Lincoln's Home, the Old and New State Capitol and The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, your students will be enthralled with all that Springfield has to offer. Please note that the Springfield Convention and Visitor's Center is responsible for all tour scheduling. Please ask your Hemisphere Account Executive to send you the Springfield Tour and Date Request Form so we may submit it on your behalf.
