1. The Real Lincoln Highway: The Forgotten Lincoln Circuit Markers by Guy C. Fraker. The Vermilion County Court House is one of the fourteen Counties that Lincoln stopped at as a lawyer of the Eighth Judicial District Circuits between 1847 - 1859. This link has a map and history of the route that Abraham Lincoln took as he travelled this Circuit. For Lincoln students - and they that seek a better understanding of life in the 1860's - this is indeed a historical trip through the heart-land of America on the roads of Illinois.
