Details of the book

This is a colorful history of the people involved for more than a century in the doings of the Illinois State Society in Washington, D.C., as well as a narrative history of politics in Illinois and America since the Society's founding in 1854.Known as Illinois'"103rd county," the Society -- Washington's oldest -- has served as a home away from home for Illinoisans of both political parties, and the nonpolitical, living and working there. The Society's many social and charitable activities have helped diminish the partisanship often prevalent in a political capital.For political history buffs, the narrative also details the major events in Springfield and Chicago -- from Lincoln and Douglas in the 1850s to Douglas, Dirksen and Daley during recent decades -- all within the context of America's national history.Heavily illustrated, with a thousand-name index, readers will also find included biographies of famous Illinoisans in the arts, science, literature, business and sports.
