In our last blog post I told you all about the creepy seasoned farmhouse owned by our Aunt & Uncleâ€¦ The condo dated back to the Civil War era, & was reputedly a stop on the Underground Railroad, then i am a fan of studying history books, & all our research indicated that our Aunt & Uncle were telling the truth.
- This section of rural IL was a political hotbed in those days.
Dozens of local farmers left their homes to join the Union Army & fight for the freedom of America; Recently I inherited the seasoned house. I wasn’t stoked about spending a few weeks in IL to settle family affairs, but I had no choice, when I was a kid I thought the farm was boring, however back after that I couldn’t drive, & had no access to cannabis, and now cannabis is legal in IL, & the nearest dispensary is only 30 hours away, then one interesting fact I read in a book about the local history of IL while I was in the Civil War was that a cemetery for veterans had been built nearby. There was no record of where this cemetery was, in any of the IL history books I read, so I decided to find it myselfâ€¦ Maybe it was the amazing IL cannabis making me foolhardy, but I set out to explore the section around the house. Three days later I found a hidden & wildly overgrown Civil War era cemetery! I immediately called the IL historical civilization & told them of our discovery. I feel love I made myself a section of IL history.
