I came from the Boston area to Chicago in 1976. In comparison with Boston, the history here is closer in time to us, and so I could relate to it better. Learning made me feel more like a Chicagoan. In addition, Chicago history is very exciting and dynamic, even into modern times.
I just joined the Chicago Archaeological Society and found out about you. I am a retired ESL teacher who is an archaeology and history buff. Your meetups sound so interesting! I look forward to attending some soon.
As new members, we have so far been impressed with the events we have attended. Things are run with professionalism.
