This Fort de Chartres is sold by Les Amis du Fort de Chartres to raise funds for the Les Amis du Fort de Chartres education project. The tshirt art is the first in its series and is part of one of our educational projects we feel very passionate about. The project is a new line-art publication, French Colonial Fort de Chartres, a Journey in Time, depicting “Forgotten Illinois” pre-statehood years of 1755-1756 in and around Fort de Chartres. “A Journey in Time” will be a 36-40-page line-art one color publication, created by award-winning artist Tom Willcockson and published by Les Amis du Fort de Chartres. Tom is the artist of the current interactive pamphlet available at the fort and he has two other publications Twelve Moons: A Year with the Sauk and Meskwaki, 1817-1818 and Passage to Chicago: A Journey on the Illinois & Michigan Canal in the Year 1860. Both of these books have won the Illinois Association of Museums’ Superior Achievement Award. The art style of this publication is unique to other published histories, will appeal to and present a great visual perspective for young adults and the general public, and will be a much needed history book in schools and libraries.
