Shipping from the State of Georgia to Illinois
The youngest of the 13 former English colonies, Georgia was founded in 1732 and included in the union on January 2, 1788, as the fourth state. By the mid-19th century, Georgia had the greatest number of plantations of any state in the South, and in many aspects, it emerged as a breeding house of plantation culture in the country.
Located in the southeastern region of the United States, Georgia is bordered by Tennessee to the north, South Carolina to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Alabama to the west with Atlanta as the capital. Atlanta is the largest city and it is called by the nickname of Peach State.
It is also well-known as the “Empire State of the South”. The state tree is the Live Oak and Cherokee rose is considered the state flower. ‘Wisdom, Justice and Moderation’- is the state motto.

Chicago, located on Lake Michigan, and connected to the eastern ports via the Erie Canal became a booming metropolis, and even the fire of 1871 could not stunt its growth. In the second half of the 19th century, the great need for workers in the mills, rail yards, and slaughterhouses made Chicago a popular destination for immigrants and freed blacks. During Prohibition Chicago became synonymous with bootleg liquor and gangsters like Al Capone.
After the American Revolution against the British, Illinois became a territory of the United States and achieved statehood in 1818.
Illinois has been noted as a microcosm of the entire United States. With Chicago in northeastern Illinois, small industrial cities and immense agricultural productivity in the north and center of the state, and natural resources such as coal, timber, and petroleum in the south, Illinois has a diverse economic base and is a major transportation hub. Chicagoland, Chicago’s metropolitan area, encompasses over 65% of the state’s population.
Illinois shares its eastern border with Indiana, Lake Michigan to the north, to the Wabash River in the south above Post Vincennes. Most of the western border with Missouri and Iowa is the Mississippi River; Kaskaskia is an exclave of Illinois, lying west of the Mississippi and reachable only from Missouri. The state has a northern border with Wisconsin. The northeastern border of Illinois lies in Lake Michigan, within which Illinois shares a water boundary with the state of Michigan, as well as Wisconsin and Indiana. The state capital is Springfield.
Illinois took the nickname Prairie State; Land of Lincoln. The state tree is the White Oak and the state flower is the violet. And the state motto is State Sovereignty, National Union.
