  1. Illinois River

    The Illinois River is a principal tributary of the Mississippi River, approximately 273 miles long, in the State of Illinois. The river drains a large section of central Illinois, with a drainage basin of 28,070 square miles. This river was important among Native Americans and early French traders as the principal water route connecting the Great Lakes with the Mississippi. The French colonial settlements along the river formed the heart of the area known as the Illinois Country. After the construction of the Illinois and Michigan Canal and the Hennepin Canal in the 19th century, the role of the river as link between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi was extended into the era of modern industrial shipping.
