Info

Illinois History Forum offers a rotating group of moderators to lead discussions on books, films and exhibits from various topics from Illinois' past.  Bring a sack lunch and join us as John Lupton, Illinois Supreme Court historian, talks about Creating the Land of Lincoln: The History and Constitutions of Illinois, 1778-1870.

----------------------------------------------

The Illinois History Forum will feature a discussion of the book "Creating the Land of Lincoln: The History and Constitutions of Illinois, 1778-1870." Author Frank Cicero Jr. uses the various Illinois constitutions to shed light on the controversies that shaped Illinois. They include the addition of northern territory that literally changed the would-be state's shape and the years of debate over slavery, which changed its moral legacy.

Illinois Supreme Court historian John Lupton will lead the discussion. The free event begins at noon, Thursday, July 12, also at the library building.
