Its amazing what Civil War connections one finds. We stopped at a rest area near Bloomington and found this little marker. Bloomington is where Lincoln gave his Lost Speech, so named because no text of the speech exists. I wonder if its the only such speech of his. Also it seems incredible that there is no record of what he said. I bet somewhere there is a grad student researching this very speech, trying to find some sort of text of it somewhere. This concludes my series of Lincoln posts from our summer vacation.
