The Illinois State Historical Society are preparing to dedicate three historical markers across the state to honor key moments in history that helped shaped both the state, and the local areas where the markers will be placed.
Gwen Podeschi with the Illinois State Historical Society explained the markers are placed throughout the state, to recognize a number of different historical moments.
The markers help highlight some of the more intricate details of Illinois history. Podeschi says Christian County is home to one of these markers, to honor Abe Lincoln's time practicing law in Taylorville.
Podeschi appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
