If you have not considered hiring a guide, then consider this…

When you visit the sites you're only going to get a very general interpretation and limited history of the site.

You won't get the personal and human stories of Lincoln doing the sites on your own.

Some site interpreters are hired only seasonally and have a limited knowledge of Lincoln.

Many site interpreters don't have information on all the events and things to do while in town.

But if you hire a guide, then consider this…

You're going to get the full story of Lincoln's life, especially his life in Springfield.

You're going to hear all kinds of humorous and witty stories of Lincoln that still make us chuckle today.

All of Springfield Walks guides are retired site interpreters and have been giving tours for 10 plus years each.

All of our guides are local and have a working knowledge of all there is to do and see while in town, including the "off the tourist path" things.

You'll get personal attention and service, get your questions answered, hear stories you're interested in, and we'll move along at your pace visiting the site that you want to see.

But most importantly…if you hire a guide, we will enhance your visit with Lincoln history and stories that you will not get doing the sites on your own AND we will help you make your very own personal connection to Abraham Lincoln that will impress upon you for a lifetime! With a Springfield Walks guide, it's not just a tour…it's an experience!

2015 Lincoln Funeral Commemoration


Illinois Tourism Commercial

Lincoln was the first president assassinated and his death greatly affected the entire nation. Please join us on May 1-3, 2015 in Springfield to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Springfield funeral. Please attend dressed in period attire to help add to the authenticity of the event.

Garret Moffett will be serving as Master of Ceremonies and acting in the role of Ward Hill Lamon for the commemoration.

Lamon was Lincoln's former law partner, best friend, and personal bodyguard, but was not on duty the night of Lincoln's assassination though he had incessantly guarded Lincoln through the White House years. Lamon's final duty was to escort Lincoln's coffin from Washington back to Springfield.
We are also calling on veteran organizations and schools to participate in the event and the funeral procession. Please visit the web site for information and how to participate.

5,000 Civil War reenactors are already committed to the commemoration.

Please visit the web site to make your tax deductible donation to help support the event.
