Excerpt from The Lincoln Way: Report of the Board of Trustees of the Illinois State Historical Library of the InvestigationsTo the General Assembly of the State of Illinois:Gentlemen - The Forty-seventh General Assembly of the State of Illinois byMoreExcerpt from The Lincoln Way: Report of the Board of Trustees of the Illinois State Historical Library of the InvestigationsTo the General Assembly of the State of Illinois:Gentlemen - The Forty-seventh General Assembly of the State of Illinois by joint resolution directed the Board of Trustees of the Illinois State Historical Library to make the necessary investigations to determine the exact route traveled by Abraham Lincoln in his removal from Kentucky to Illinois, and to report to the General Assembly at as early a date as possible, and make such recommendations as they deem advisable to carry out the purposes of this resolution.

The purpose of the resolution and of the investigation, which it requests, is perhaps indicated in one of the introductory clauses of the joint resolution, in which it is stated that it is the sense of the people of Illinois that a fitting and permanent memorial to the memory of the great emancipator would be the consecration and dedication of the route that he traveled from the place of his birth in Kentucky, through Indiana, and thence to his tomb at Springfield, to be known forever as the Lincoln Way.The trustees of the Illinois State Historical Library heartily endorse the purpose of this joint resolution and gladly cooperate to conduct the necessary investigations.At a meeting, held shortly after the adjournment of the last Legislature, the board of trustees of the historical library appointed its president.

Professor Evarts B. Greene, a committee of one to take charge of the investigation of the Lincoln Way. Professor Greene secured the services of Mr. Charles M.Thompson, of the University of Illinois, to undertake the detailed work of investigating the evidence that may throw light upon the problem. The trustees wish to place on record their high appreciation of the painstaking, thorough work which Mr. Thompson is doing in the effort to solve the many perplexing difficulties connected Mith the determination of the route taken by the family of Mr.

Lincoln through Illinois. Furthermore it is to be added that Mr. Thompson is generously donating his services to the State in this important work.This report is only a preliminary statement of the investigations undertaken, and of the plans for the future investigations. The trustees will make a final report, with definite recommendations as soon as the subject can be exhaustively investigated, and the actual facts established.

We present the report of Mr. Thompson to the trustees of the historical library to show the progress that has thus far been made.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
