I was honored to pay tribute to the great Abraham Lincoln on his birthday today. President Lincoln was an honest man of integrity, he had a generous heart, and a strong sense of justice for all people. Thank you American Legion Post #32 Springfield Illinois and all the members for sponsoring the Annual Pilgrimage to the Tomb of Abraham Lincoln. It’s an honor to represent the district of the final resting place of our nation’s 16th President.
“This ceremony serves more than recognition for a great man who led the nation during the Civil War, but the power of his words left behind for all of us to seek wisdom and truth.”
– Representative Mike Coffey
