In this Illinois Adventure the show also goes to Decatur to see the Oglesby Mansion-home of Governor Richard J. Oglesby. Still undergoing careful restoration, the house is filled with unusual artifacts and interesting stories from Oglesby's life as a U.S. Senator, Union General in the Civil War, three-term governor of Illinois, and close friend and colleague of Abraham Lincoln.
