A Brief History of Illinois
- The area that is now Illinois did not see heavy settlement until the U.S. gained independence from Great Britain in the late 18th century. After the land west of the Appalachian Mountains was opened to settlement, Illinois grew rapidly. Chicago is one of its largest cities and was instrumental in the growth of the state. Illinois contributed over 250,000 men to the American Civil War and was the home of several prominent men of the time, including President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant. After the war Illinois grew into one of the largest manufacturing states in the country, though it is also known for its agricultural production. Today the economy of Illinois is said to be a microcosm for the entire United States economy, as almost every bit of the U.S. economy is represented by one of the sectors of Illinois’ economy.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Illinois
- As one of the most important transportation hubs in the region, the state of Illinois sees a lot of traffic along not just its many interstates but also via air, river and rail. Chicago is by far the state’s largest city and one of the largest in the entire country; as such, it is one of the most popular transport locations in the entire U.S. With many and more metro areas dotting the state – cities such as Springfield, Peoria, Rockford, and Champaign, among many others – carriers have many different areas that they can easily (and cost-effectively) get into and out of. This in turn makes it easier and cheaper for us to move your car, which means you save money when transporting to or from Illinois. During the winter prices may go up a bit, as the weather is more harsh and snow and ice more common, but that’s something you can discuss with your auto transport representative about.
