I’ve only been to Illinois once, but loved it. My nostalgia and this news are combining into roadtrip lust. Here’s hoping the Address displayed isn’t as disappointing as the documents in the National Archives, though – mouldy, green, unintelligible paper isn’t as big a draw as you’d expect.
A handwritten manuscript of the Gettysburg Address will be displayed this summer at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield.
The document can be viewed in the museum’s Treasures Gallery from Friday through Sept. 4. It was last displayed for five days in February.
