    Lincoln-Douglas Debate 3 more images

    by Toughluck Updated Jun 1, 2009

    The City of Ottawa has completed 5 and commissioned more murals around the city. We found the Lincoln-Douglas Debate, the 1950's, the Civil War, and the Buffalo. Most were located along LaSalle Street as that's were we spent most of our time.

    One of the Aqueducts on the Illinois and Michigan Canal. Begun in 1838 by the engineering Sanger family (Erie Canal), this $100,000 acqueduct was the most expensive construction along the route.

    Here, Lincoln and Douglas had one of there many debates. Popular opinion always assumes that Lincoln won the debates. Well, he lost the election, therefore, it's presummed he lost the debates.

    Fox River Park

    by Toughluck Written Jun 1, 2009

    Only went part way along this trail. The wind was cold and the January temperatures below freezing. This area is the Fox River Park (1020 Ontario St) -east side of town. You'd have to imagine the trees in leaf, a warm breeze and people strolling along.

    Follow the Illinois and Michigan Canal State Path through Ottawa. It was in the 20's (F) and the wind was blowing. This is January 2nd afterall. We didn't walk far, but found it exilerating.
