Author and historian Alan Bower's The Last Stop: Lincoln and the "Mud Circuit" allows the reader to ride the Eighth Judicial Circuit with Mr. Lincoln and visit "the last stop" before heading home to Springfield. In addition, Bower provides insight into Lincoln's membership and position as chairman of the Committees on Counties during his formative years in the Illinois General Assembly. He discusses his involvement of creating over 25 counties in Illinois, including Christian County, whose citizens rejected Lincoln's choice of "Dane" for this new county.
