Illinois Archives repairs, digitizes National Guard World War I maps
By Associated Press - 11-3-17

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — The state of Illinois has repaired and digitized 57 maps that the Illinois National Guard used during World War I to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the war.

Illinois Secretary of State and State Archivist Jesse White said Friday that the Illinois State Archives did the work on the maps. His office says the maps feature the guard’s 33rd division, which was the only distinctly Illinois division that saw active service during the war in France. The maps are available online for the public to see and download.

The state archives also holds daily correspondence of battlefield orders and about 150 post-war enemy intelligence and location maps.

Note: More than 350,000 Illinois residents served in World War I. More than 5,000 died.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
