Binding Our State Together: 200 Years of Canals, Railroads, Postal Services and Roads (2:00 - 4:00pm; Illinois State Museum Auditorium, 502 S. Spring Street, SPRINGFIELD)
Free and open to the public. Bicentennial Speaker Series presented by Dr. Norman Moline. In Illinois, as in most places, people and communities have sought to connect with other places through nodes of transportation and communication for cultural, economic and political reasons. After Illinois was created, state and private companies have worked to bind our different regions together through infrastructure. Such links vastly expanded the spaces used by people and the connections between communities. They turned our state from merely a designated area on a map into a more unified, functional territory and contributed to our character and identity. Historical geographer Norman Moline will provide a broad survey of the development of Illinois’ connections since 1818.
This program is part of the “The Culture and Heritage of Illinoisans” series held on the third Sunday of every month through October, 2018. The series is presented by the Academy of Lifelong Learning at Lincoln Land Community College in collaboration with the Illinois State Museum and will feature several Road Scholar Speakers offered by Illinois Humanities. For more information, please call the Illinois State Museum, (217) 782-0979, or the Academy of Lifelong Learning at Lincoln Land Community College, (217) 786-2477.
