“Get ready, get ready, get ready as the First Ladies will be having their own day in the Illinois State Capital!”

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, IL, is celebrating the lives of the First Ladies of Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses Grant, Ronald Reagan, and Barack Obama.

The June 14th event is called “History Sparkles.”

Four historians stationed around the museum will give brief presentations and take questions about Mary Lincoln, Julia Grant, Nancy Reagan, and Michelle Obama.

The event is part of a program about the presidents who once lived in the state, called “From Illinois to the White House: Lincoln, Grant, Reagan, and Obama.”

Tickets are $35, although museum members will get a 10 percent discount.
