Happy Independence Day 2016 -- July 4, 2016
Happy Fourth of July to all. 240 years ago, we declared our independence. I find it hard to believe it has been 40 years since the bicentennial.
The Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad ran between Chicago and Saint Louis. After World War II, the Missouri Pacific took over. The line now belongs to the Union Pacific. I can't remember where I found this beautiful ad for Fourth of July discount tickets.
