Biographical or historical data
Under the provisions of the Northwest Ordinance, when a territory reached a specified population count it could then become a state. The territorial Governor was empowered with the authority to take censuses while the territorial Secretary was to preserve the census returns. When a census verified that the population met the minimum requirement for statehood, the territory drew up a constitution and formed a government, enabling Illinois to become the twenty first state admitted to the Union on December 3, 1818.
