Which of the following cities is a state capital?

Answer:

Springfield, IL

What is the capital of Illinois? Most would probably guess Chicago. For starters, Chicago is by far the biggest city in Illinois, with over 2.7 million residents. But Chicago is not the capital of Illinois. That distinction goes to Springfield. Like many states, the capital of Illinois has changed a few times over the years. Starting in 1809, when Illinois was still just a territory, the capital was Kaskaskia. In 1818, Illinois was granted full statehood, and by 1819, the state capital had moved to Vandalia. In 1839, the capital eventually moved north to Springfield.
