Historic Map - Springfield, IL - 1867

View of Springfield, Sangamon County, I.L., 1867 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This bird’s-eye view print of Springfield, Illinois was drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Chicago Lithographing Co. in 1867. Springfield was given its current name in the early 1830's. Springfield became the third state capital of Illinois in 1839. Its most prominent citizen during this era was Abraham Lincoln who was a circuit lawyer at the time.

Springfield was active during the American Civil War, rallying troops and raising funds for the war effort. Camp Butler was set up nearby as a training camp for the many soldiering-up Illinoisans. It was also used as a prisoner of war site.

Following the war, Springfield continued to prosper as an agricultural community and railroad transportation center.
