December 4, 2017

It was on December 3, 1818, that Illinois became the 21st state of the United States of America . . .




"I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have.

I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong."




~ Abraham Lincoln
