Located in rural Randolph County, Illinois, Fort de Chartres seems out of place. The imposing limestone fort with fifteen foot walls once stood as the seat of government for the vast "Illinois country," and a symbol of hopes for the future of New France. The History Guy recalls the forgotten history of the fringe of the French empire in North America.
