Every one of us moved into a appealing town last year; Our parents had grand plans to keep expanding their contractor in Lake County, then the transfer proved to be the best, then i was still struggling to decide my major once I joined school! But, as fate would have it, both of us moved next door to a renowned historian.
Mr, but wilson came to welcome us to the section once we’d moved in with a tote full of muffins. Since it was chilly outside, my mom asked him to come inside beautiful and warm, however every one of us l received fast that the Illinois Wintertide was nothing to joke about, and having a sound heating system was non-negotiable. Mr. Wilson came in, and both of us all had supper together. It’s while both of us were talking that I l received he was a historian. I got interested and started asking so many questions about him, how he started, and even the history of Libertyville. Mr. Wilson invited me to his beach house the next day to go through his expansive book collection. I went the next day to his beach house and was floored, but he had not expressed the full extent of his book collection. It looked like a Barnes and Noble. Every one of us began talking about Libertyville, and he told me the native Indian who owned the land had to sell it at some point. Back in 1719, there was so much pressure to use the land for economic and mining resources. The natives finally conceded and sold it to the US government for $12000 in cash. They also gained another $12000 worth of essential goods they’d need after moving from the area. One other item they required was salt to seal the deal. The tribe would acquire 50 barrels of salt each year.
