Picture: Complex Illinois is a true cross section of America. The great city of Chicago, rich agricultural lands, the life and times of President Lincoln, the legend and lore of the mighty Mississippi - all combined in the heartland of America.
These Post Cards were sent by Ginny, she has been a real source of encouragement for me during this project, actively looking for new contacts and making sure I didn't give up despite lots of let downs by less considerate people. If everyone was like Ginny I would have completed this project in a month.
Ginny is based in Springfield, I have long been a fan of Homer. :o))
Picture: The only home Lincoln ever owned, now a National Historic Place in central Illinois. Open to the public and tour groups.
