MT. PULASKI - Birthday celebrations are in order all week to honor the late President Abraham Lincoln.
Some early participants honored President Lincoln by visiting one of the few courthouses still standing in which president practiced law.
At the Mount Pulaski Courthouse, viewers walked on the same boards Lincoln walked.
Participants told WAND today's politicians can learn a lot by studying President Lincoln's legacy.
"The importance is growing year by year and Abraham Lincoln represented a time where politicians could work together on both sides of the aisle and I think that's a lesson well learned today," said Geoff Ladd.
The former president's actual birthday is Tuesday.
