We are at the huge stone State Capital Building in Springfield, Illinois.  At the very front of the building we are looking up at the columned area where there is a large statue in bronze of Stephen A. Douglas in the most prominent position. This is the city of Abraham Lincoln and at the state capitol Lincoln first ran against Stephen Douglas and lost.  This was before he ran for president and caused him to firm his resolve in politics and run again to famously win the presidency.
