This would be of help to those old time residents who knew that the streets did have names, but were seldom used. This would al- so be of help to the old timers in reading subsequent issues of the Times- News. Enclosed is our contribution for a bound copy of the Souvenir Edition.

The History rides the Illinois Central Q This spring and summer you may join many others visiting historic landmarks in Mid- America. We hope you ride the Illinois Central, the railroad that history rode a hundred years ago. In those years the fortunes of war ebbed and flowed along the spidery-thin rails now united as the Illinois Central, whose heavier rails today carry the fortunes of peace for Mid-America. Riding our trains or watching them pass, you may recall the names of many who went from these lines to war... Confederate Gen- eral Beauregard, who ordered the first shot fired on Fort Sumter; General McClellan of the Union Armies; Confederate Secretary of State Benjamin; an Illinois Central lawyer named Lincoln. Remember, too, that an early Illinois Central troop train carried to war a shabby storekeeper named Grant. Military people call the war of the North and South the first modem war, the first in which men and munitions moved en masse by rail. The first battle of Bull Run shifted from defeat to victory for the South when trains rolled up decisive reinforcements. Those were youthful years for Mid-America and for this railroad.., the seed years of to- day's prosperous land of farms, factories, mines and forests. North and South have grown as one land, laced together by the lines of the Illinois Central. That's why we epjoy being called the Main Line of Mid-America. WAYNE A.
