Did You Know?

Chicago was actually part of Virginia for several years. A young general named George Rogers Clark captured the Illinois Territory from the British in 1778, but did it on behalf of the state of Virginia. Illinois remained part of Virginia until 1784, when it was ceded to the fledgling United States of America.

A water bottle and tripod serve as stand-ins as Michael emulates Daniel Chester French's statue "the Republic," which stands on the location of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair administration building.
