• Illinois Adventure #1507 "Illinois and Michigan Canal"

    The opening of the Illinois and Michigan Canal in 1848 gave Illinois the key to mastery of the American mid-continent. The dream of the canal had animated every vision and under laid every plan for Illinois for 200 years before. As that vision was realized, the canal's commissioners laid out a canal port that would grow into a great metropolis; their fellow citizens patented agriculture and industrial innovations that would make this the richest economic zone the world had ever seen. That Illinois is now the most populous inland American state, and Chicago the greatest city of the American heartland, are directly traceable to the 96-mile ditch that linked the Great Lakes to the Illinois and Mississippi rivers. The Illinois and Michigan Canal is one of the best-kept secrets of American hist...

  • The Illinois and Michigan Canal Song by Ray Tutaj Jr.

    Song i wrote about the I&M canal which is part of the history of my hometown of LaSalle IL. If you enjoy my songwriting please check out my Album "In my Hometown" at: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/raymondtutajjr1 The I&M canal is rich with history and the importance of it in transporting goods is immense. However the idea for this canal dates back to the early 1670's when French explorers such as Louis Joliet, Father Marquette envisioned a water route to connect the Chicago River to the Des Plaines river but explorer Cavalier LaSalle insisted they go all the way to the Illinois River at a point which would be later called LaSalle. The Illinois River upstream was to shallow and rocky to float any cargo boats. This proposed route would ultimately connect the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexi...

  • Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor, Joliet, Illinois

    This canal was built in the 1830s and 1840s along the portage between Lake Michigan and the Illinois River, which had long been used as an American Indian trade route. The canal rapidly transformed Chicago from an isolated crossroads into a critical transportation hub between the East and the developing Midwest. A 61-mile recreational trail follows the canal towpath.

  • My Painting of Illinois & Michigan Canal - Lock 14 and 15 in LaSalle IL around 1900

    I spent over two months working on this painting and i must say it was not easy for me. But i am glad i made the goal and stuck with it. I will have prints available for those who are interested. I was aided by many photos i collected of the area through the local libraries and other historians of the area. Each picture offered new details. My aim was to be as accurrate as i could be. The canal boat "IRENE" was named after a boat that traversed the canal. The train type is also indicitive of a late 1890s steam loco with wood-sided coaches. The steam boat also was duplicated from a boat in LaSalle at one time. The factories off to the right and so on. Of course i wish i had more photos to work from but i did my best with what i had. It gives people a glimpse of what the area was like around...

The Illinois River upstream was to shallow and rocky to float any cargo boats. This proposed route would ultimately connect the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico and places such as New York and New Orleans would then be connected. It was only a dream at that time and the consideration for such an immense project would not be considered until 150 long years later in1818 when Illinois then became a State. In 1836 work began and numerous Irish immigrants along with others from black slaves, Indians, German, English and French Canadian Immigrants. I have a DVD available of this video if one is interested. Perhaps they can use it as an educational tool. Contact me at gjourney1@yahoo.com Please note that the old images collected here are in public domain and are available to the public for use. I do want to thank the person for the pic of the Illinois and Mississippi river converging. That was very helpful for this video. All other credits are listed at the end of the video.
