The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library is releasing "Tumultuous 2020," an oral history of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project includes interviews with more than 80 people across the state, detailing their experiences during the pandemic and the effect it had on their lives.

Among those interviewed for this project were Bryan Crain, the owner of Crain Funeral Homes with locations throughout southern Illinois, and Eric Bandy, who expanded Bandy's Pharmacy to Salem, Centralia, Irvington, and Wayne City.
