This issue of Illinois Heritage offers a snapshot of the “Best of Illinois History” ceremony, where we gave out more than 35 awards, including three Lifetime Achievements awards, the Olive Foster Teacher of the Year award, and the new Russell L. Lewis Jr. Young Museum Professional award. We also take a look at Ulysses S. Grant, the soldier from Galena who led the Union Army to victory in the Civil War and became the nation’s 18th President. In this two-part retrospective, we see Grant through the eyes of the soldiers who served under him along the way.

Lewis & Clark State Historic Site will host a presentation exploring the struggle over slavery in early Illinois History. Hearing the words of 19th Century pro-slavery figures like territorial governor Ninian Edwards and anti-slavery figures like Governor Edward Coles, visitors will experience the tension in bringing about Illinois statehood while navigating slavery politics.
