—Jamestown Settlement —


The French established settlements at Cahokia in 1699 and at Kaskaskia in 1720, in what was then the province of Louisiana. After the French and Indian War, the region was ceded to the English. During the American Revolution, George Rogers Clark secured the area for the United States, and it became a part of the Northwest Territory in 1787. The area then became part of the Indiana Territory. In 1809, the Illinois Territory was organized and statehood was granted in 1818.
