This is a bold pictorial map of the state of Illinois detailing this history, natural beauty, agricultural achievements, and outdoor activities. Special attention is paid to Abraham Lincoln as the map delineates the Lincoln National Memorial Highway, and each site of the famous Lincoln vs. Douglas debates of 1858. In Chicago, select landmarks are pictured in the style of a bird’s eye view. The seal of Illinois fills the center of a sharp compass rose.
What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
