How did Joliet feel about Marquette?
Joliet thought Marquette lacked tact and cleanliness. In the canoe, he often sat as far away from Marquette, as possible. He had hopes that one day a mall would be named after him, because Joiet felt he had way more fashion sense than Marquette. Low and behold, there is a Louis Joliet Mall in Joliet, Illinois, today!!
