Did you know…
… that today is Illinois Day? Illinois became the 21st state in the United States on this day in 1818. With Chicago in the northeast, small industrial cities and great agricultural productivity in central and northern Illinois, and natural resources like coal, timber, and petroleum in the south, Illinois has a diverse economic base and is a major transportation hub. Happy birthday, Illinois!
