What a great experience we had learning about the religious and political similarities of Abraham Lincoln and the Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith.
We were able to visit historical sites of interest to Latter-day Saints and Lincoln admirers: Springfield, New Salem State Park, Quincy, Nauvoo, Carthage, Monmouth, and Knox College
Thanks to The Mormon Heritage Association and those who were able to join us.
We hope to be able to offer this again next year.
