A quill pen and ink well from the mid-19th century rests on a desk in the house chamber of the Old State Capitol Building in Springfield, Illinois. The chamber remains in a state consistent with the pre-Civil War era when Abraham Lincoln served in this building and writing implements were of this nature.
