Illinois is made up of two completely different regions. The highly urbanized area of ​​Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan contrasts sharply with the agricultural south and west. This division is very closely tied to the history of Chicago.

When French travelers invaded present-day Illinois in 1673, they found the Algonkin Indians. The French soon established settlements along the Illinois River, which they used as bases for further advance south. In 1763 the territory was ceded to Britain. The British government provoked conflicts with both Indians and Native Americans, which slowed down European colonization. During the War of Independence, the Illinois area was handed over to the United States. The settlement on the site of Chicago was founded in about 1790 by the merchant Jean-Baptiste-Point Du Sable (1750-1818). The territory of Illinois was created in 1809, when it was separated from the territory of the Indian. The first wave of settlement followed.

Conflicts with the Indians resulted in the Black Hawk War of 1832. In 1848, slavery was abolished by the constitution. Despite Confederate supporters in the south, Illinois remained in the Union during the Civil War. Then-President Abraham Lincoln spent most of his life in Illinois.

After the Civil War, Chicago prospered rapidly thanks to immigrants from Europe, who formed ethnically detached neighborhoods, and the great expansion of the agricultural processing industry throughout the Midwest. Many former slaves from the southern states also came to the city. It remained the center of the radical workers’ movement until the 20th century. During the Prohibition of the 1920s and 1930s, Chicago became a symbol of violence, which overshadowed all social and cultural progress, due to rivalry between gangs of alcohol smugglers. Racial discrimination still persisted in the agricultural south, and the Ku-Klux-Klan also operated there.

The differences between the south and the north are still clear. Agriculture (corn, soybeans) is important, as is the traditional meat and milling industry, but advanced transport engineering, electronics and especially business and transport services are crucial. O’Hare International Airport is the largest in the world.
