Managers at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield want to see if they can help at Lincoln’s home. Museum spokesman Chris Wills yesterday said the museum has offered to send volunteers to Lincoln’s home, which is also in Springfield, while the home is closed because of the partial government shutdown. Wills said it’s just an offer right now, but the National Park Service says it’s considering the offer.
