The Sangamon County Historical Society plays host to Indianapolis-based McClernand Clawford, great-great-great grandson of Civil War General John A. McClernand, a close friend and political ally of Abraham Lincoln. McClernand served in both the Illinois House of Representatives in 1836 and from 1840-1843, and in the U. S. House of Representatives from 1843 to 1851.
