French explorers first visited the Illinois region in 1673 by travelling down the Mississippi River, and the Ohio River brought many settlers westward to southern Illinois in the 19th century. Illinois became the 21st state in 1818, and most of the native Americans were forced out of the state by the 1830s. Chicago, the most populous Midwestern city, has become an economic powerhouse and a major rail, road, air transport, and shipping hub. Goods are shipped between Chicago and Atlantic Ocean ports via the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence Seaway; goods are barged between Chicago and the Gulf of Mexico via rivers and canals.
