    Caption: The official state song Illinois, although written just prior to the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, was not so designated until June 30, 1925, by the Illinois State Legislature. The song was written by Charles H. Chamberlin, a veteran of the Civil War, wounded at Gaines Mill. The music, by Archiibald Johnson, was adapted from a popular song which he wrote several years earlier. The President called it "a song that will never die."A verse of the song is engraved on Chamberlin's tombstone in Forest Home Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois. The bill which was made to make Illinois the official state song was introduced in the State Senate by Florence Fifer Bohner, daughter of Governor Joseph W. Fifer and our first woman Senator."
