WEDDING COUPLE IN LINCOLN, ILLINOIS (WHO SAID "NOTHING BEARING THE NAME LINCOLN EVER AMOUNTED TO MUCH"?)

by bmarshphd

LINCOLN BETHROVEDA couple pose for their wedding portrait in Lincoln, Illinois. The photographer is E. B. Core. The bride is wearing a dark wedding dress and the groom is wearing a corsage. The story behind how Lincoln, Illinois received its name is quite interesting. The town is the only town named for Lincoln before he became President of the United States. He worked as an attorney in the town between 1847 and 1859. The town was named Lincoln in 1853 and during the ceremony, Abe Lincoln christened the town by pouring watermelon juice on the ground. When it was originally proposed to name the town after Lincoln, Mr Lincoln stated that he was against the idea and that in his experience, "Nothing bearing the name of Lincoln ever amounted to much".
