Abraham Lincoln enshrined

Thousands of movie-goers will be heading to the theater this weekend and over the Thanksgiving holiday to watch Steven Spielberg's epic new film about Lincoln,. The film focuses on the debate over the Emancipation Proclamation, the anti-slavery measure that Lincoln championed which later became the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

While the film largely takes place in Washington, DC, it is not the only place to have shaped Abraham Lincoln and his legacy. From central Kentucky to Illlinois to Gettysburg, there are many Lands of Lincoln across the United States. Have a look at this list of Lincoln sites in the USA and start planning your visit.

Update:

Virginia Tourism has announced the Lincoln Movie Trail. If you want to see where Lincoln was filmed and where the crew dined and hung out, check out this site for more details.
