Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 2:00 PM
 The Roads that Lead to Lincoln first takes a whimsical look at the commercial abuses of Lincoln's name, likeness and legacy. We then trace Lincoln's paths from his family's subsistence farm to the growth of his legal and political careers, and how those careers influenced the rise of Illinois as the crossroads of the nation and the Gateway to the West. We look at the nation mourning, as the Lincoln Funeral Train brings his coffin back to Illinois for burial. Then we detail the connections of Lincoln and his family to the cities and villages along Route 66, the Great River Road, and the Lincoln Highway in Illinois.
