Representatives from the Illinois state organization of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) proposed the installation in advance of the country’s upcoming 250th birthday.

Last month, more than a dozen NSDAR members spoke to commissioners, sharing concerns they had heard the elected body was opposed to the plaque installation. At Thursday’s meeting, commissioners reiterated they instead were doing their due diligence before casting the unanimous vote in support of NSDAR’s proposal.
