The city of Des Moines is named for the nearby Des Moines River, but the etymological of origins of Des Moines River are contested: many believe the river took its name from a nearby Indian tribe called the Moingonas, but others think the name refers to a group of Trappist monks who once lived at the mouth of the river (moines is the French word for monks).

Tallahassee is an Apalachee word meaning “old fields” or “old town.” It was given its name by Octavia Walton, the teenage daughter of Florida’s territorial secretary George Walton, who believed it meant “beautiful land.” In fact, though Walton is credited with officially suggesting the name in the 1824, the Apalachee had been calling the area Tallahassee since the 16th century.
When the railroad reached the region in the 1830s, it became known as Terminus—the last stop on the Western and Atlantic Railroad line. In the 1840s, when it began to look as though the railroad might continue past the town after all, residents decided to rename it and it became Marthasville before being named Atlanta (after the Atlantic Ocean).

Originally called Springfield for the nearby Spring Creek, the city was briefly renamed Calhoun in the 1820s, for politician John C. Calhoun. But the name never caught on with the city’s residents, who continued to call the city Springfield, either out of distaste for the politician or simply out of habit. Eventually, giving in to local pressure, the city was officially re-named Springfield in 1833. Let TravelKatz plan your next Illinois Vacation Package and visit some of the most amazing historical museums in the country.

In 1848, Lansing, Michigan was named after Lansing, New York, which was named for John Lansing Jr., a New York delegate to the Constitutional Convention.

Sitting high atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers, the city of Vicksburg was the site of an epic battle and is now Vicksburg National Military Park, preserving original fortifications and the U.S.S.

Vicksburg is also the place where Coca-Cola was first bottled, a fact that is happily immortalized at the Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum.
