Illinois - 50 States - US Geography

Illinois became the 21st state of the Union on December 3rd, 1818. Before being settled by Europeans, Illinois was home to a vibrant Native American culture, still visible in places like Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site. Our series of US geography videos "Visit the 50 States," gives you a little history and interesting facts about each state. For every state, you'll learn when it entered the Union, what's its motto, how did it get its nickname, and see what the flag, seal, and state capitol building all look like. We'll find the state capital on the map! There's also fun trivia - do you know the state tree, flower, and bird?
