4/10. I thought their state motto was “Slip me a hundred and I’ll approve your request”

Nobody cares about the Peoples Republic of Illinois. Ill-in-oys. Farming is the only good thing there.

10/10 Lived in Illinois all my life and I don’t like Chicago either! Take away that hole in the wall and Illinois is as red as it’s neighbors!

Lived in IL most of my life, then moved to MO in 2017. Can’t believe I missed three of these. Illinois is all about Lincoln, had no idea Ronald Reagan was born there. I can’t find the humor is Chicago being the meat packing place.

Maybe I’m being a little picky, but on question number 7, I-55 is an interstate, not a highway. Other than that question, I did terrible, LOL.

Basically, to know the motto of a state, you have to have gone to elementary school there. Like many others, I missed only that one. Narrowed it down to two and selected the wrong one. As for who was born in Illinois, most of know that Lincoln was born in Kentucky, but if you answer quickly . . .

9/10. I thought the state motto was a trick question so I chose “Liberty & Independence” for the obvious irony. It should be “Live Free Or Stay Here.”

Thinking as I guessed ‘what’ the motto could be since I didn’t learn it in history class – but considered the impact of the Civil War, date Illinois entered statehood, etc. Just didn’t consider the temperature of the Madison vs State Rights battle at its time of statehood
The official state motto of Illinois is “State Sovereignty, National Union.” 
This motto was controversial after the Civil War when national unity was of prime importance. However, the Illinois legislature commanded that the motto remain the same, but the new design for the state seal and flag positioned the scroll so that “National Unity” is at the top. It remains unchanged and appears on the Illinois state seal and state flag

8/10 I could kick myself for answering Lincoln because I knew he was born in Kentucky. As for the motto I had no clue.

No questions on whose cow started the Chicago fire? or about St Valentine’s Day Massacre? Or that both airports in Chicago (Midway & O’Hare) are based on World War II Events?

tzzzable’s comment was the best! I got all 10, a rarity, and have only driven through the state a few times, never stopped, or wanted to; can’t stand Chicago. I credit it to my reading and love of American history, as once long ago, Chicago was “the (real) wild west,” a cowboy town that came to be because of the railway head for herding cattle to slaughterhouses there for shipment east.
