“No one knows more about Springfield or its State Capitol than the city’s legendary resident historian Wayne C. Temple, or his wife, the building’s longtime guide, Sunderine Temple. In their new book they combine prodigious research, an unerring appreciation for the great men who made history in this landmark, an ear for lively stories, and a dazzling storehouse of intricate detail, to create a long-needed, enchanting, and definitive study of one of the most important buildings in the life of Abraham Lincoln and his hometown. At last, one of Springfield’s great temples has found the perfect Temples to chronicle it with coherence and verve.” —Harold Holzer, Co-Chairman, U.S. Lincoln Bicentennial Commission
