On the cover: This portrayal of Lincoln is that of a young
man, before he was persuaded by a young girl to improve
his looks by growing a beard.
For the record: An article was inadvertently omitted
from the Contents page of the December 1997 issue of
Illinois History. An Element of Greed: The Herrin Massacre,
