Illinois proud: honoring 200 years of our history

bicentennial IntroGraphic

On December 3, 1818, Illinois became the nation’s 21st state. As we celebrate our state’s 200th birthday, we asked senators to talk about people or places in their districts that represent the best of Illinois’ rich past and how that is shown in local history, tourism, culture or community impact.

Here are three compilation videos of our senators at sites in their districts that they believe exemplifies the best of Illinois' past, present and future. Click here to see each individual video, and for more Bicentennial information, visit http://ilikeillinois.com/.
