Daughters of the American Revolution, Illinois Chapter, Historic Sites of Illinois. Records, 1926-36 | Illinois History and Lincoln Collections
During the 1920s and 1930s, the Illinois Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution endeavored to publish a guide to historic sites in Illinois. Reports and other papers from this project are contained in this collection, with the material organized by county and town. The collection specifically indicates the location of Revolutionary War soldiers' graves in Illinois.
After the project was abandoned, the materials were presented to the Library by the State Board of the D. A. R., and transferred to the Illinois Historical Survey in 1959.
