The life and times of Carl Sandburg are gloriously preserved as its own trail in Galesburg, Illinois. It is the ultimate Carl Sandburg tour, beginning at his birthplace, which you can read about at sandburg.org on the driving map page.
Get to know Carl Sandburg, poet, author of Lincoln’s best-known biography, and occasional “hobo” folk song writer who won several Pulitzer Prizes.
You can also read about Sandburg through his North Carolina page. If you like this writing style, you might also like to read our pages on Will Rogers (California and Oklahoma pages).
This is the seventh stop on our Illinois Trail!
