This new Fort de Chartres t-shirt is sold by Les Amis du Fort de Chartres to raise funds for Les Amis du Fort de Chartres education projects. The t-shirt art chosen for our new design is the “Parade Ground at Fort de Chartres” and the second design in our t-shirt series. This new t-shirt series is related to our new line-art publication, French Colonial Fort de Chartres, a Journey in Time, depicting “Forgotten Illinois” pre-statehood years of 1756-1757 in and around Fort de Chartres. “A Journey in Time” is 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 of Fort de Chartres and presents a great visual perspective for young adults and the general public, and is a much needed history book in schools and libraries. The book is also available for purchase from The Heart of Illinois Country Heritage Shop.
We are very passionate about the history of Fort de Chartres and our new publication and the related t-shirt series were created to support this history. Your book and t-shirt purchases support all of Les Amis du Fort de Chartres’ educational efforts. Merci!
