“Telling the Story with Maps: Maps of Early Illinois and Where to Find Them” WEBINAR

September 10 @ 8:00 pm

Presenter Ginger Frere

As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” This is also the case with maps. From simple hand-drawn sketches to intricately detailed masterpieces, maps can convey immense detail. They can provide the names of places, distances, topography, geographical features, migration routes, land ownership, boundaries and political jurisdictions. Maps allow us to see the physical relationship between places. Maps can help us answer questions – how did our ancestors get from one place to another?
