The Roads that Lead to Lincoln: Finding Honest Abe on the Historic Highways of Illinois

From the Back Cover of The Roads that Lead to Lincoln:

As the crossroads of the Dixie Highway and the Lincoln Highway in Chicago Heights, Illinois, there is a statue of Abraham Lincoln with the inscription, "On the Road to Greatness." Lincoln's life before his move to Illinois was typical of frontier, hardscrabble existences in the early 19th century American West. His road to greatness truly began when we set out on his own at age 23, and his journey led him to champion the internal improvements of the natural landscape of Illinois. In his day, those improvements were the bridges, railroads, waterways, and connecting roads that would impose a civilization on the wild frontier. Thanks to his contributions, we can now explore the places where Lincoln practiced law, engaged in politics, and raised a family along the Historic Highways of Illinois.

This book traces the sites relating to Lincoln to be seen on three of the Illinois National Scenic Byways: Route 66, the Great River Road, and the Lincoln Highway. Along these thoroughfares, we follow in Lincoln's footsteps along his Roads to Greatness.

Images of America: Route 66 in Chicago Award-winning Book from Arcadia Publishing

From the Back Cover of Route 66 in Chicago:

"It winds from Chicago to L.A."--so says Nat "King" Cole's classic hit "(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66." Beginning in 1926, Route 66 was the only U.S. highway providing a direct connection between the Windy City and the City of Angels; thus, it is no wonder that Route 66 would become the metaphor of the American journey. The crescent-shaped route from the shore of Lake Michigan to the southern Pacific Coast followed a corridor blazed by Native American footpaths, pioneer waterways, and transcontinental railroads. As the frontier moved across the Great Plains to the ocean, Chicago was the point of embarkation for people emigrating from the east, and it was the marketplace for the products harvested in the west. During the golden age of the car culture, Chicago was where people started their California trips as they took "the highway that's the best."

Historian David G. Clark has collected images symbolizing and interpreting the city and highway's shared past. The postcards, vintage and modern photographs, and periodical illustrations in Route 66 in Chicago lead to an inescapable conclusion: there could be no Route 66 without Chicago, and Chicago would be a far different place without the "Mother Road."

The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.

Route 66 in Chicago was the First-Place winner, non-fiction history book category, of the 2008 Illinois Women's Press Association Communications Awards.

"Much as Route 66 and the city of Chicago share a kindred history, so do the art and text, paired perfectly so that readers get plenty of information and are able to see what the author is talking about." -- Jon P. Callender, American Road Magazine

"David Clark has produced an excellent volume tracing the Route 66 Corridor through the Chicago of today and back to early Native American trails and waterways...Clark is noted for his outstanding research and entertaining writing style and this book does not disappoint in either category" -- Bob Moore, Route 66 Magazine

Exploring Route 66 in Chicagoland: Journeys through History on the Mother Road in Cook County, Illinois Now available in the 2nd Revised Printing!

For most people who think about such things, Route 66 BEGINS in Chicago and ENDS in Los Angeles, although you of course can start driving anywhere upon its length and travel in either direction from any point. Access is not limited, nor is there any limitation to the depth of a 66 experience.

But why did 66 START in Chicago? And in Chicago and the rest of Cook County, why was it placed upon Jackson Boulevard, Adams Street, Ogden Avenue, and Joliet Road? Why did it go on those streets, and not others, as it made its way out west on that California quest?

The answers to these questions and more can be found in this book. As towns along the 66 corridor from Tulsa to Albuquerque and from Odell to Barstow have found ways to preserve and celebrate their highway history, Chicago, where the road BEGINS, has done next to nothing to develp its Route 66 heritage. This often leaves visitors frustrated at the very beginning of their California Trip. With Exploring Route 66 in Chicagoland, the tourist can finally learn the history that shaped U.S. 66 in the Windy City, and in all of Cook County.

Whether you are an armchair tourist, taking a Virtual Tour through the written word...

Whether you are driving through Chicago, wishing to have a better understanding of the historical context about the sights along the highway...

or Whether you are wishing to explore Route 66 in Chicago's Loop on foot...

Exploring Route 66 in Chicagoland will help you get the most out of your adventure. So, settle in to your recliner, fasten your seat belt, or tighten your shoelaces--no matter how you take the journey, it starts right now. 66 BEGINS here, my fellow Road Warriors, in a city named Chicago. Let's GET OUR KICKS on ROUTE 66!!

"Exploring Route 66 in Chicagoland is not just a guidebook of the Mother Road in Chicago, but a history primer of that great city...The book not only provides historical capsules of the buildings and places along Route 66, but also of the streets themselves--Ogden Avenue, Jackson Boulevard, Adams Street, and Joliet Road...Exploring Route 66 in Chicagoland made me re-appreciate the magnificence of the Windy City." -- Ron Warnick, Route 66 News

"Clark is a long recognized expert in the area of Route 66 in Chicago and has published articles in numerous publications, including Route 66 Magazine. But with Exploring Route 66 in Chicagoland, he has truly brought to the Roadies of the world the best researched and most detailed look at Chicago's Route 66 ever produced...Loaded with history, excellent contemporary and historic photographs, well thought out maps, and amazing detail, Exploring Route 66 in Chicagoland is a must have for anyone interested in exploring where Route 66 begins." -- Bob Moore, Route 66 Magazine

Postmarked 25th Anniversary Commemorative Cover. Click here for larger view

Postmarked 25th Anniversary Commemorative Cover

On January 17, 2002, the Route 66 shield once again appeared in Chicago's Grant Park on Jackson Drive, where it had not been seen in 25 years. This postmarked cover commemorates that event.

The official 66 signs were taken down in Grant Park, Chicago, Illinois, the Eastern Terminus of the famous "Mother Road" on January 17, 1977. For decades, these signs let travellers know that they had gone as far east as possible on 66. A Chicago Sun-Times photographer captured the moment when Department of Transportation workers took down these signs as route 66 was decertified, replaced by the interstates. These had been the last remaining signs along the route in Illinois.

Famous Chicago Sun-Times photo of last Illinois 66 signs being removed January 17, 1977

The purpose of the "End of Route 66" sign seen in this photo was simply to alert the traveler that they had reached the eastern terminus of this US highway. To travel further on the highway system, the driver must turn left or right for north or south US 41 at Lake Shore Drive. But as this photo was taken, "End of Route 66" took on a whole new and sad meaning. Was this the beginning of the end for the "Mother Road," not just as a commissioned highway, but as a cultural icon, as a part of the American Identity? At this moment in time, 66 was truncated to 5 of its original 8 states. In 1985, as Williams, Arizona was bypassed, 66 ceased to exist as an official US Highway.

But was this truly the "End of Route 66?" Travelers from around the world came searching for 66, looking to recapture the nostalgia of the open road from a different era. As hundreds of diners, gas stations, and motels closed due to lack of business, those remaining dug in and stayed the course, hoping for a better day.

State and National Associations were formed by people interested in preserving and prolonging the legacy of the old road. In 1996, thanks to these efforts, the Illinois Department of Transportation adopted the white-and-brown "Historic Route 66" signs already displayed in other states and placed them along the old alignment throughout the state. But they decided to post the "End 66" sign at Jackson and Michigan Avenue, and the "Begin 66" sign at Adams and Michigan, even though Lake Shore and Jackson on the western edge of Grant Park had been the eastern terminus for at least 40 years (1937-1977).

The 66 sign is returned on the 25th Anniversary of the removal

So, since the route had run through Grant Park for over 40 years, and since the famous photo had been taken in the park 25 years before, I decided that maybe it was time to let 66 visit it's old Grant Park home. So I set out on January 17th, 2002, the 25th anniversary of the removal of the signs, and put the signs back up.

"End of Route 66?" NO WAY! Route 66 lives on as long as Tom Teague (Searching for 66), Michael Wallis (Route 66: The Mother Road), and many others continue writing about it; as long as the Associations in the eight 66 States keep active; and as long as the National Historic Route 66 Federation and all of the businesses and people along the route continue to preserve and promote it. And as long as people like you and me continue to discover it, 66 will never end.

If you reach THIS end of 66, left, briefy showing it's black and white shield to all who passed on January 17, 2002, there is still no true "end" in sight. Every ending is a beginning, and Jackson Boulevard through Grant Park is still a two-way street. So just turn around, and BEGIN AGAIN!!

The Commemorative Cover features a postage stamp of California (the OTHER end of 66) and an official USPS postmark of January 17, 2002. Therefore, once all of the limited edition are sold, no more can be made. The covers are $5.50, plus shipping.
