About Illinois

Illinois is a US state located in the Midwestern region of the country. It gained statehood in 1818. It is the 6th most populated and the 25th largest US state (by land area). The word Illinois originates from French – it is a French rendering of a native Algonquin word. The capital of Illinois is Springfield. However, the largest city is Chicago (also known as Windy City, Chi-town, Second City or City of Big Shoulders). The majority of the population of Illinois speaks English (80%). Besides English, languages spoken are Spanish (14 %) and other (5%). Three US Presidents were elected while they were living in Illinois: Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and Barack Obama. Today, Illinois honors Abraham Lincoln with an official state slogan “Land of Lincoln”, which is being displayed on license plates since 1954. Also, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is located in Springfield, the capital of the state, and the Barack Obama Presidential Center is supposed to be finished by 2020 in Chicago.
