2012 Illinois History Symposium
The 2012 Illinois History Symposium will be held April 16-28 at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in East Peoria. It promises to be an engaging and stimulating foray into Midwest frontier history, with emphasis on the War of 1812, Native-American history, prairie archaeology, and the historic city of Peoria. All are welcome and we hope you will take this unique opportunity to explore early Illinois history during the 200th commemoration of the War of 1812.
A note to teachers: Continuing Professional Development Units (CPDUs) will be available to registered teachers. Some scholarships (i.e. registration waivers) are available. For details call the Society office at 217-525-2781.
