Civil War Memorial Highways Here in Illinois

The South is not the only place where the sesquicentennial commemoration will be taking place. There are plenty of events right here in Illinois.

Just from a road stand-point, I live right off US-12, which is called the Iron Brigade Highway. Farther south is US-20, the US Grant Highway and the first US transcontinental road, the Lincoln Highway (US-30, Il-31, Il-38 and Il-2) and the Grand Army of the Republic Highway, US-6.

Not bad for a backwater of the war.
