The Mythic Mississippi Project is pleased to present the following films which, we hope, will contribute to the development of cultural tourism in downstate Illinois.

In addition, we call attention to the exceptional films made by our colleague, Dr. Graham Peck, the distinguished Lincoln scholar in the Department of History at UIS, who has produced twenty short videos in collaboration with artists who explore Abraham Lincoln under the concept of “Making Our History: Aritists Render Lincoln’s Legacies”.
