Abraham Lincoln: A Mighty Presidential Tour (PHOTOS)

Honest Abe will get a nod from Steven Spielberg when his latest film, "Lincoln," hits theaters nationwide Friday.

The state of Illinois is rolling out the welcome mat to any tourists who, prior to a Spielberg release, didn't know the Great Emancipator hailed from The Prairie State.

While many visitors know of rubbing Lincoln's nose for good luck at the Abraham Lincoln Tomb State Historic Site, did you know you can visit the Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices, where Lincoln practiced from 1843 to 1852?

Herewith, a tour of all things Lincoln in the state of Illinois.
