Cahokiathe largest regional chiefdom and urban center of the Pre-Columbian Mississippian culturewas located near present-day Collinsville, Illinois. Monks Moundthe center of the site, is the largest Pre-Columbian structure north of the Valley of Mexico.
The finely crafted ornaments and tools recovered by archaeologists at Cahokia include elaborate ceramics, finely sculptured stonework, carefully embossed and engraved copper and mica sheets, and one funeral blanket for an important chief fashioned from 20, shell beads.
These artifacts indicate that Cahokia was truly an urban center, with clustered housing, markets, and specialists in toolmaking, hide dressing, potting, jewelry making, shell engraving, weaving and salt making.

Slavery was nominally banned by the Northwest Ordinance, but that was not enforced for those already holding slaves. When Illinois became a sovereign state inthe Ordinance no longer applied, and about slaves were held in the state.
As the southern part of the state, later known as "Egypt" or "Little Egypt",   was largely settled by migrants from the South, the section was hostile to free blacks.
Settlers were allowed to bring slaves with them for labor, but, instate residents voted against making slavery legal. Still, most residents opposed allowing free blacks as permanent residents. Some settlers brought in slaves seasonally or as house servants.
