6/24 at Hegewich Marsh on the south side of Chicago.  This bird was only a foot off the ground exhibiting typical fly and return flycatcher behavior.

I think Acadian based on the very clear long primary extension.  I also think everything else fits with the details from this fabulous document I will once again post:

Flycatcher document

Here are 4 photos of this bird.  This is a bird I have been trying to get photos of for quite a while.  What do you think?

Have you considered Eastern Wood-Pewee? I can't eliminate it from what I see here, and the behavior you describe (low to the ground flycatching) fits way better for that.

Blah, Doesn't my desire for it to be Acadian count for anything?

A Wood-Pewee by any other name is still a Wood-Pewee........😐
