....Illinois, the first Capitol of the state,
in the heart of Lincolns land, but had a different fate;
also was the terminus of The National Road,
stretched from Baltimore, opened up the mother lode.
Also first home of the 'Madonna of the Trail';
shows a hearty woman who is far from frail,
holding a baby, her son tugs her skirt,
rode the covered wagon, her husband looking for pay dirt.
Top: The Capitol Building, now a Historic Site.
Middle: The Madonna of the Trail, there are twelve throughout the USA.
Bottom: On the outskirts of town.
