--> Illinois In 1913, five years prior to the centennial of statehood, Wallace Rice submitted a proposal for an Illinois state flag. It had horizontal white-blue-white stripes with 20 blue stars and 1 large white star, representing Illinois's position as the 21st state to join the Union. The legislature did not approve the design, but on July 6, 1915, it adopted a flag that had been developed in a contest sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution. On a white field the flag showed design elements from the state seal--a rock on a stretch of land with water and the rising sun behind it, plus a shield bearing the national stars and stripes in the claws of a bald eagle. A ribbon in the beak of the eagle bore the motto of Illinois, "State sovereignty--national union," and the dates 1 Read More

--> --> USA > Illinois Online Highways United States Illinois Illinois Also known as "The Land of Lincoln", Illinois is anchored by the nation's third largest city, Chicago , which lies along the shores of Lake Michigan and is affectionately known as "The Windy City".

Lincoln won the Presidency two years later, and then attained much of his fame as Commander in Chief during the Civil War, an Read More

Early native residents included the prehistoric Mound Builders. In 1673 French explorers Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet explored the Illinois River, which they named for the native Illiniwek people. As a result, the area was part of the French Empire until the Treaty of Paris of 1763 when it passed to the British as a resul Read More
