Dear Rainer,

If you have a week, you may wish to visit what survives of the old Gennett
building in Richmond, in far eastern Indiana.

http://joelfrancis.com/2010/03/03/gennett-records/

Vincennes, IN is one of the sites of military battles that caused the
British to withdraw from the so-called Northwest Territories (modern states
of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan). If you have the
time, an interesting side journey is Galena, Illinois, a small town that in
steamboat days was predicted to overtake Chicago. It is also the birthplace
of Ulysses S. Grant, and functions as a museum of antebellum architecture,
as the town never grew after c1850, when the railroad had sealed its fate
forever. When you're in Chicago, have a Vienna Hot Dog. Whatever your final
itinerary, have a happy time exploring.

Ciao,

DDR
