Lincoln Correction

Regarding a reference to Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace
in April’s “On the Road” column: The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National
Historic Site at Hodgenville includes a memorial building housing the cabin where
he was born, at the site of his birth. The Lincoln Homestead State Park at Springfield
re-creates the settlement started by Lincoln’s relatives.
