The Illinois Old State Capitol: A Witness to History (DVD)

Item#: 370104




Completed in 1853, Illinois’ Fifth statehouse was for a time the most lavish capitol in the West. Designed in the Greek Revival fashion of the era, it is a colossal architectural gem that also preserves Abraham Lincoln. Recognized as a historic landmark, the Old State Capitol State Historic Site is where young Abraham Lincoln delivered some of his most stirring political debates, speeches such as ''House Divided,'' and before a judge eloquently articulated some of the most memorable defenses as a lawyer.
