Illinois is a state in the Midwestern region of the United States. Of the fifty U.S. states, it has the fifth largest gross domestic product (GDP), the sixth largest population, and the 25th largest land area.
Illinois became the 21st state of the United States in 1818. Kaskaskia remained the state capital, which was housed in a tiny structure rented from the state. In 1819, Vandalia was designated as the state capital, and during the next 18 years, three unique structures were constructed to serve as the capitol. Under the leadership of state representative Abraham Lincoln, Sangamon County politicians succeeded in having the capital transferred to Springfield, where a fifth capitol building was built, in 1837. In 1867, a sixth capital building was built, which is still used as the state capitol today.
