Alaska is the largest state in the country! With an area of 663,300 square miles, you could fit other states within Alaska. You could fit Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia within the arctic state with space to spare.
The first Spanish missionaries arrived in California in the 1700s, but California didn’t become a U.S. territory until 1847, as part of the treaty ending the Mexican-American War. Shortly thereafter, the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in 1848 inspired a wave of settlers to head to the west coast in search of fortune. In 1850 California became the 31st state, and is now the third largest state behind Alaska and Texas.
The Aloha State became the 50th U.S. state in 1959. The nickname comes from a way to say hello and goodbye in Hawaiian. Also, Hawaii is the only U.S. state with two official languages: English and Hawaiian.
Native American tribes living on the land felt that the settlers were encroaching on their way of life. In 1876 the Lakota Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes banded together to take back their land, defeating the U.S. Army at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876.
Following the Mexican-American War in 1848, Mexico ceded the land that would become New Mexico to the United States. The government accepted the land’s residents as U.S. citizens with full rights. Decades later, both the Confederate and the Union claimed ownership of the land during the Civil War.
Utah has been inhabited for thousands of years by native groups including the Puebloans, Navajo, and Ute. The first major outside group to travel to Utah and settle in the area were Mormons. Today, just over half of Utah residents identify as Mormon.
Washington is the only US state named after a president. Other states’ names often came from English cities, Native American words, or the suggestions of European colonizers. Today, many people get confused between Washington state and the nation’s capital, Washington D.C.. What you may not know is that there’s an extreme irony there.
Wyoming is a great place to be a locum. Whether you’re a history buff, an outdoor enthusiast, or both, there’s something for everyone in the Equality State. Did you know Wyoming was the first state to grant suffrage to women? It’s also home to the world’s first national park!
