Illinois Counties To Get Lincoln Portraits For State’s Birthday
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois’ birthday present to its counties is a new picture of Abraham Lincoln. A new portrait of the former president, standing outside of the Old State Capitol in Springfield, to be precise. A private group is paying for the 102 portraits to be given to each of the state’s 102 counties. So far 25 have been sent. Illinois’ 200th birthday celebration begins in December.
