All proceeds from these sales will be used to support the Illinois State Historical Society.

*Most of the books for sale are new or very gently used and in extremely good condition.  If you have any specific questions, please feel free to call the office at 217-525-2781, Ext. 1.

Remember the Distance that Divides Us: The Family Letters of Philadelphia Quaker Abolitionist and Michigan Pioneer Elizabeth Margaret Chandler, 1830-1842

This abundant collection of historic letters gives a fascinating, intimate glimpse into the joys and heartaches of life on the Michigan frontier. Filled with rich detail, the correspondence portrays the rigors of homesteading and the striking contrasts to life in Philadelphia. The first-hand observations captured in these letters offer important new insights into the Abolitionist movement. Above all, the beauty of the author's own words preserves forever a poignant record of the emotional toll families paid to open this country.
