Abraham Lincoln and the Eighth Judicial Circuit

A Road Scholar program by Guy Fraker

Lincoln`s formative years as an attorney were spent riding ““the Circuit““ through central Illinois. Each of these towns has its own unique story regarding Lincoln`s contribution to their towns and their citizens and, of course, their contributions to Lincoln. One cannot fully understand Lincoln and his development without understanding this period. This presentation includes Lincoln`s role in each town, the cases he handled, the associations he made, and the related history of these counties.“
