Slow, but ok. Again, we need a "back" or "previous" key on the form for the purpose of editing previous comments as more information is remembered. Otherwise, I'm very happy. This was my 50th RS trip.

Lots of information on our most important president and a critical time in the country's history. Some prior knowledge helps, but is not essential to getting a lot out of this event.

This was a great program, with lots of information on Abraham Lincoln. One of the best organized in the 50 RoadScholar programs we have attended. Kathy was a wonderful group leader.


This program will enrich your knowledge and appreciation of all Abraham Lincoln was and became. The country was divided when he was elected and he kept us together following the Civil War. I have a greater love for this man and all he did. Do not miss signing up for this program. Speakers, leader, accommodations, food and field trips are wonderful.


What a super location for concentrated Lincoln history! I enjoyed the lodging location downtown Springfield, we walked to all our destinations but one. The Lincoln library and museum are both wonderful. The lectures were very interesting, my favorite was Dr. Samuel Wheeler.


This program is a gem! It went far beyond my expectations due in big part to the group leader, Kathy. All of the speakers were outstanding and so knowledgeable when it came to Lincoln I learned so much I had never known and was captivated the whole time! Don't miss this one!


I was a "first-timer" and was not disappointed. Wonderful program.
