Tractors Coming to A. Lincoln Presidential Museum

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, Illinois is one of the great treasures in the world in regards to our 16th President. This is an amazing facility and I am glad to see they are going to have this special exhibit.

More than 30 antique and small-engine tractors will be displayed outside the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, Sixth and Jefferson streets, from 10 a.m.
to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 25, in conjunction with the museum’s exhibit, “Illinois
Stories: How Vast and How Varied a Field ... The Agricultural Vision of Abraham
Lincoln.”Tractors can be viewed along Sixth Street in front of the museum. The
Land of Lincoln Antique Tractor and Engine Club will present the show. Visitors
are encouraged to go into the museum to see the only known intact model of a
1918 John Deere all-wheel-drive tractor. Paid admission is required.Original
Lincoln documents and artifacts are displayed alongside antique farm implements
in the exhibit, which runs through Aug. 31, 2010. For more information, visit www.presidentlincoln.org.
