“The burial site of the 16th President”

On April 15, 1865, the life of President Abraham Lincoln was tragically cut short by an assassin's bullet. The leader of a war-torn union became a martyr for the union he labored so hard and deeply to save. At the wishes of his loving wife Mary, his beloved remains were returned to his hometown of Springfield, Illinois. The Lincoln Monument in Oak Ridge Cemetery was erected to preserve the honored memory of his self-less dedication in preserving the United States of America.

Also located within Oak Ridge Cemetery are the War Memorials. These memorials honor Illinoisians who served their country's call to service in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. They were built to perpetuate the memory of the many soldiers who sacrificed their lives to keep the United States "the land of the free and the home of the brave" by their honored and meritorious service. The union preserved by Lincoln was defended and protected by these courageous men and women in the global conflicts of the mid-20th Century.

You will want to go inside. The outside is great too, but don't sell yourself short. The inside has much more to offer.

As an American, I felt obligated to make this stop. Glad I did. Abe was pretty chill so it was cool to see his tomb.
