EIU History Club Visits St. Louis

The EIU History Club recently visited a number of historical sites and museums in the St. Louis area. Some of the places visited were the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site in Hartford, IL, the Elijah Lovejoy Monument and Alton National Cemetery in Alton, IL, the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, and the Museum of Westward Expansion located underneath the Gateway Arch. The group also enjoyed some delicious Ethiopian food for lunch and some tasty gelato for desert!
