    Illinois History Conference

    Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum

    October 6-7, 2022

    Cynthia and I are on a panel on Friday afternoon. Cynthia will talk about touring Illinois, which relates to her book, Destination Heartland: A Guide to Discovering the Midwest's Remarkable Past. I will talk about the information gathered over 13 years of Family Heirloom Recipe Contests at the Illinois State Fair.

    A third panelist is Nancy Webster of the Highland Park Historical Society talking about the photographic documentation of log cabins at the turn of the 20th century. The Daughters of the American Revolution made this a project because it was recognized this type of construction was fading. There are a number of images from Highland Park.

    And because I'm always doing historic research, I hope to find a horseshoe sandwich while I'm in Springfield. :)

    Managed to score a couple of horseshoes plus was introduced to Springfield chilli (to Ls intentional). Just learned in another thread that there are still other delights to discover in Springfield. So many choices, so little time.
