A City With Rich History
Not many Midwest cities can boast the historical significance that Springfield, IL offers. Although much of the early history of the U.S. is limited to the eastern portion of the country, Springfield touts one of the most revered and historically vital presidents, Abraham Lincoln, among its own. Also the state capitol of Illinois and a hub during the Civil War period, Springfield has a rich political history.
Springfield was settled by trappers and traders around the first decade of the 1800’s and was known as Calhoun until it was renamed in 1832 to its current name. First it became the county seat and then in 1839 it was named the state capitol, surmounting the previous two towns with the title.
There have been several events over the last two hundred years in this relatively small city of just over 115,000.
- President Lincoln. The 16th president of the United States lived in Springfield from 1837 to 1861, when he left to take his position as president. He gave his famous Lyceum address in Springfield and also his farewell speech before leaving for Washington.
- Civil War. The city was host to the first regiments to train and serve under Ulysses S. Grant and was a political and financial resource throughout the war.
- Springfield Race Riot. In 1908, a three-day race riot plagued the streets of Springfield. Six people were murdered and only after thousands of militiamen took control of the city did the rioting stop.
- President Obama. In 2007, the 44th future president, Barrack Obama, made history in Springfield when he announced his candidacy for president at the site of the Old State Capitol building.
