On Lincoln's own street, occupations ranged from an elected state official to washer women; income levels varied widely; and houses ranged in size from modest dwellings to spacious two-story houses, such as the Lincoln Home.
According to the 1860 Census, Springfield's residents included Irish, German, Portuguese, and African Americans.
By the time Lincoln left Springfield in 1861, Illinois typified a border state, with a slave-holding tradition, a desire to preserve the Union, and a mixed population of both northerners and southerners.
