Illinois is a state in the Midwestern Region of the United States and is home to the city of Chicago, which is located on the southwest shore of Lake Michigan. Admitted to the Union as the 21st state on December 3, 1818 as the third state from the Northwest Territory, Illinois is a largely rural state, with the only major population centers being Chicago and the state capital of Springfield. It is the home state of Art Jeffries, Tommy Jordan, and Simon Lynch. The Lake Michigan Overpass bridge, which links Chicago to the states of Indiana and Michigan, was completed in 1984. A portion of the so-called 'Chicago Span' of the bridge was sabotaged by Zero Section agents Andrew Ridd and Will Patterson on March 5, 1999, killing Scott and Katharine Smith - Simon Lynch's foster parents.
