The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Lincoln Land Community College has partnered with the Illinois State Museum and Illinois Humanities to offer this seminar presented by Dr. Norman Moline. Seminar Summary: People and communities seek to connect themselves with one another through modes of transportation and communication for cultural, economic, and political reasons. Soon after Illinois became a state in 1818 and increasingly during the following decades, the state endeavored to bind its different regions together through infrastructure. Such linkages have vastly expanded the dimensions of the lives of individuals and groups throughout our state. They have also helped to unify Illinois in certain respects and contributed to its character and identity.
