Chicago is the third-largest city of the USA. Its nickname, "the Windy City," though thought by many to refer to a climate influenced by the city's location on the southwest shore of Lake Michigan. Chicago is the capital of the state of Illinois.
It was founded 1830. On August 1833, the town of Chicago was organized with a population of about 200. Today is the population 2.800.000 people. There are some nice buildings and skyscrapers.
The first Europeans to arrive at the site of present-day Chicago were French explorer Louis Joliet and Father Jacques Marquette in 1673. Over a century later, in 1783, Jean Baptiste Point du Sable became the first permanent resident of European descent in the area when he established a fur-trading post there. Early in its history, the settlement endured the massacre of 53 Americans when 500 Potawatomi warriors stormed Fort Dearborn, which had been built to protect the settlers, during the War of 1812. The name "Chicago" is derived from a French rendering of the Native American word shikaakwa, translated by some sources as wild onion, from the Miami-Illinois language. The first known reference to the site of the current city of Chicago as "Checagou" was by Robert de LaSalle around 1679 in a memoir.
