The conquest of the Illinois by George Rogers Clark( )

Most of us think of the American Revolutionary War as being fought only in the Colonies stretched along the Atlantic seaboard. But the region between the Ohio River and the Great Lakes, the Alleghenies and the Mississippi later known as the Old Northwest, figured quite prominently. A frontiersman, George Rogers Clark, carried out a campaign of conquest in the Illinois country that for enterprise, daring and determination is equal to any in our history. His feat was chiefly responsible for giving this area to the Colonies, rather than to Canada, under the Treaty of Paris in 1783

A woman's story of pioneer Illinois by Christiana Holmes Tillson( Book )

20 editions published between 1919 and 2009 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christiana and John Tillson moved from Massachusetts to central Illinois in 1822. Upon arriving in Montgomery County near what would soon be Hillsboro, they set up a general store and real estate business and began to raise a family. A half century later, in 1870, Christiana Tillson wrote about her early days in Illinois in a memoir published by R. R. Donnelley in 1919. The Tillsons lived quite ordinary lives in extraordinary times, notes Kay J. Carr, introducing this edition. They moved west and prospered in the land business at a time when America was being transformed from a rural, agricultural country into an urban, industrial nation. Their views and sensibilities, Carr says, might seem strange to us, but they were entirely normal to people in the early nineteenth century. Thus Tillson's memoir provides fascinating but believable snapshots of ordinary nineteenth-century American life
