The historian gave me a brief history of Libertyville

We moved into a beautiful neighborhood last year. Our parents had grand plans to keep expanding their business in Lake County. The move proved to be the best. I was still struggling to decide my major once I joined college. But, as fate would have it, we moved next door to a renowned historian. Mr. Wilson came to welcome us to the area once we’d moved in with a basket full of muffins. Since it was cold outside, my mom asked him to come inside lovely and warm. We learned fast that the Illinois winter was nothing to joke about, and having a sound heating system was non-negotiable. Mr. Wilson came in, and we all had dinner together. It’s while we were talking that I learned 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 house the next day to go through his extensive book collection. I went the next day to his house and was floored. He had not expressed the full extent of his book collection. It looked like a library. We began talking about Libertyville, and he told me the native Indian who owned the land had to sell it at some point. Back in 1829, 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 received 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 receive 50 barrels of salt each year.
