Lincoln comes to Springfield, IL, and begins his career as a lawyer in earnest. He also serves eight years in the Illinois House of Representatives. We focus on his relationship with his best friend, Joshua Speed, as well as his courtship with Mary Todd. Finally, we discuss Lincoln's duel with James Shields.
