Part 2 is all about the stories that make up the national story of the Illinois & Michigan Canal region – before, during and after the operation of the Illinois & Michigan Canal itself. Part 2 includes the national significance of the corridor, its role in the development of Chicago, and its connection to Abraham Lincoln. The events of the Corridor are organized into a timeline. Interpretive themes are devel- oped to organize and collect the smaller stories that enrich the overall story. Those extant physical resources that tell these stories are also identified.
