First day of our visit to Springfield in the Land of Lincoln. Excellent museum with 21st century animation technology. Does an excellent job of explaining the complex political issues surrounding slavery and the civil war. Lincoln was target of extremely nasty attacks from multiple quarters... his genius was how he navigated this to further his objectives (saving the union and freeing the slaves).
