Illinois was admitted into the United States on December 3rd, 1818 where the state capitol today resides in Springfield.

The official Illinois motto, adopted in 1818, is "State Sovereignty, National Union." This motto reflects the state's commitment to the union of the United States, a commitment that has remained strong since its founding. The motto is rooted in the ideals of the framers of the Constitution, who believed that a strong union of states was essential for the preservation of both individual liberty and the union as a whole. The motto also reflects the importance of states' rights and their political autonomy within the federal system.
