Celebrate the day that Abraham Lincoln & his family were on LaSalle-Peru with Mary Todd Lincoln as she hosts this very special canal boat tour! Climb aboard a replica 19th Century canal boat and step back in time to 1848. Mary Todd Lincoln will guide you on a tour of the western end of the I&M Canal, where she and Mr. Lincoln walked in 1848 between the canal boats and the river boats. Mrs. Lincoln will retrace an hour of the Lincoln family's trip from Washington, DC, home to Springfield on the I&M Canal Boat.
