Illinois is the fifth most populous state with a diverse economy; the largest city, Chicago, is a center for transportation, the cattle industry and commodities trading. When John Deere invented the steel plow in the early 1900’s, it brought waves of immigrants from Europe to farm the fertile prairie land south of Chicago. As a railroad and barge transportation hub in the early twentieth century, cattle were shipped to Chicago to be slaughtered in the meat packing houses. Upton Sinclair wrote the very famous novel, The Jungle, about the horrific working conditions present in the meat packing houses which led the federal government to begin its first ever food inspection process.
Chicago is home to the famous Wrigley Field and the Cubs baseball team which has not won a World Series since 1908. Cubs fans, known for their resiliency, have over many years suffered from the curse of the billy goat which was a curse placed on the team by Billy Siannis who was ejected by the owner when he brought his pet goat to a World Series game. The curse held true when the Cubs blew a 3 to 1 game lead to the Florida Marlins in 2003 in the infamous Steve Bartman incident and then miserably watched the Marlins go on to beat the Yankees for the title.
Illinois has a varied economy including agriculture, mining, high technology manufacturing and scientific research. Interestingly, Des Plaines is the home of the first ever McDonald’s franchise when Ray Kroc chose the town in 1960 for his first franchise.
