    I am an retired civil engineering technician. I became interested in preserving and hi-lighting the National Road about the time that I retired from my engineering job with the Illinois Dept. of Transportation. I have fell in love with the history and culture of the old roads that formed our nation. <br /><br />I was part of the group that formed the six state National Road Alliance. I served a president of that group from 2003 thru 2005. I also helped form the National Road Assoication of Illinois and have served as Executive Director of this orginization since 1999.<br /><br />I am also an active member of our local historical society, The Cumberland County (Illinois) Historical Society. I am now serving as president of this orginization.<br /><br />I am also a Vietnam veterin and retired from the National Guard at the rank of Major.
  1. I have attached the October / November newsletter from the National Road Association of Illinois. As you will notice it primarily covers the Illinois section of the National Road. If any one out there wants topics covered within this newsletter please contact us. Also visit our web site at www.nationalroad.org. I'm new to this process and the attachment did not follow the post. I will try again, please be patient with me. Jerry October_November_Newsletter_2.pdf
