SPRINGFIELD -- Documents more than 100 years old made their way to the Capitol City. The official records of Abraham Lincoln's funeral are on display. The three records contain specific details about how the city handled the arrangements in 1865. The Springfield City Council is giving the documents to the Lincoln Funeral Coalition. A reenactment of Lincoln's funeral is set for May 2015.
