Twenty members of the Wolf Ridge History Club and their sponsor, Mr. Justin Sandbach, visited Springfield on Thursday, April 6th. They had a tour of the capitol where they met with the Illinois State Treasurer and State Senator Andy Manar who spoke to them about government. After lunch at the capitol, the group was privileged to go to the Lincoln Library and see firsthand one of the original copies of the Gettysburg Address as well as one of President Abraham Lincoln’s own top hats. The trip was both educational and fun for the group. Our sincere thanks go out to Senator Manar for helping the group see the historical Lincoln artifacts.
