Well I guess since my blog is about saving money AND Springfield Illinois that it would just be horrible of me not to talk about the upcoming Lincoln movie coming out in November. Now I have been around Springfield pretty much all my life and have been on I don’t know how many field trips to see the Lincoln sites. But just within the last 5 or so years (ever since they opened the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum) I have become extremely interested in it. The museum feels like you are actually there living it. So when I saw the trailer (below) I knew immediately that I had to see it! I am really excited and this is one movie I might actually have an interest in fighting the crowds the first night it comes out.
Below is a little about the movie and the trailer. Check it out and leave me a comment and tell me what you think!
