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? Watch and find out! ///////////////////////// Try our 50 States Android App - it's FREE on the Google Play Store: http://bit.ly/1MVxMB4 And don't forget to Subscribe! http://bit.ly/1ixuu9W ///////////////////////// We Recommend: The 50 States: Explore the USA with 50 fact-filled maps! http://amzn.to/2mNqYu2 National Geographic Our 50 States http://amzn.to/2mql5Yx Stephen Fry in America: Fifty States and the Man Who set Out to See Them All http://amzn.to/2o2ch7r ///////////////////////// To support more videos from Socratica, visit Socratica Patreon https://www.patreon.com/socratica http://bit.ly/29gJAyg Socratica Paypal https://www.paypal.me/socratica We also accept Bitcoin! :) Our address is: 1EttYyGwJmpy9bLY2UcmEqMJuBfaZ1HdG9 ///////////////////////// Tour Guide: Michael Kelly Directed by Michael Harrison Written & Produced by Kimberly Hatch Harrison Edited by Andriy Kostyuk ///////////////////////// Creative commons picture credits: Violets http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Viola_sororia_in_Wisconsin.jpg Author: James Steakley Monk's Mound http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Monks_Mound_in_July.JPG Author: Skubasteve834 Frank Lloyd Wright's Studio http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Frank_LLoyd_Wright_Studio_Chicago_Frontage.jpg Author: Zol87 Frederick C.
