This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

A National Heritage Area is a federal-designated area intended to encourage historic preservation and an appreciation of the history and heritage of the site. While National Heritage Areas are not federally owned or managed, the National Park Service provides an advisory role and some technical, planning and financial assistance. The Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area was created as part of the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 (S. 2739), an omnibus bill. It was originally introduced in the Senate by Dick Durbin and in the House of Representatives by Ray LaHood, both from Illinois. The legislation also provided $10 million over 10 years, with no more than $1 million awarded in any single year, to make federal grants available for preservation, education and economic development. Grants awarded for Lincoln National Heritage Area activities must be matched dollar-for-dollar in state, local or private funds. The management authority for the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area is the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition and follows Lincoln's life from his birth and childhood, to his early life and career, to the Lincoln–Douglas debates of 1858. The legislation protects private property rights and would not require any private citizen or entity to be affiliated with the Lincoln Heritage Area. The bill names the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition as the management authority for the National Heritage Area, but does not grant any zoning or land use power to the Coalition. Up to $10 million in federal grants would be available under this legislation The Heritage Area includes the following sites: Lincoln Home National Historic Site Lincoln Tomb State Historic Site Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site at New Salem, Menard County, Illinois Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site Mount Pulaski Courthouse State Historic Site, Postville Courthouse State Historic Site and Metamora Courthouse State Historic Site Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site David Davis Mansion State Historic Site Vandalia State House State Historic Site Lincoln Douglas Debate Museum Macon County Log Court House Richard James Oglesby Mansion Lincoln Trail Homestead State Memorial John Wood Mansion Beardstown Courthouse Old Main at Knox College Carl Sandburg State Historic Site Bryant Cottage State Historic Site Dr. William Fithian Home Vermilion County Museum
