”’Alaska”’ is a state in the north-west of America, the United States exclave, separated from other American states by the territory of Canada.
This state is the most extensive state in the USA, famous for its natural resources. On the territory of Alaska, there are more than 3 million lakes and 3 thousand rivers – the Yukon River, the 3rd in length in the United States; 100 thousand glaciers (5% of the surface of Alaska); the highest peak of North America – McKinley Peak; about 70 active volcanoes.
Alaska is placed in the north-west of the mainland, isolated from the Chukchi Peninsula (Russia) by the Bering Strait. It consists of the continent and a vast amount of islands: the Alexander Archipelago, Pribilof Islands, the Aleutian Islands, and Kodiak Island. The Arctic and Pacific Oceans wash Alaska.
Alaska, unlike most other states in the United States with the leading local administrative division – county, has different administrative division -borough. There is one more important difference between Alaska and other states. 15 borough and the municipality of Anchorage cover only a part of Alaska’s territory. The rest of the area does not have enough population for the formation of the local government. The territories that are not part of any borough are divided into so-called census areas. There are 11 such regions in Alaska.
The capital of Alaska is Juneau. The city was founded in 1881, soon after the discovery of gold deposits. Named after the gold digger Joseph Juneau.

The community of Siberian tribes passed the Isthmus (now the Bering Strait) 16-10 thousand years ago. The first Europeans that attended Alaska were Vitus Bering and Alexander Chirikov in 1741. Alaska became a territory of Russia in 1744. The region was named “Russian America.” The Russian settlement was founded in 1784 on Kodiak Island.
The United States bought Alaska from Russia in 1867 for $ 7.2 million. It was a result of negotiations between the Russian envoy E.A. Stekl and Secretary of State William Seward.
Gold deposits were found five years later. Alaska developed gradually until the beginning of the gold rush on Klondike in 1896. It became a state in 1959.
Despite the fact that Alaska is one of the least populated in the United States America, many new residents moved to the state in the 1970s, intrigued by jobs in the oil and transport industry. In the 1980s population increase was more than 36 percent.
About 75 percent of the population is natives of the United States. There are about 86 thousand local people in the state ( Iñupiat, Yupik, Aleut, Eyak, Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian, and a number of Northern Athabaskan cultures). Russian descendants also live in Alaska, but not in such a significant amount. The main religious groups include Catholics, Baptists, Orthodox, Protestants, and Methodists. For the past 20 years, state residents have traditionally voted for Republicans.

”’Alabama”’ is a state that located in the southern region of the United States. The largest cities are Birmingham, Mobile, and Huntsville. Most of the territory is located on the Mexican Lowland, in the north turning into the hilly plain and spurs of the Appalachian Mountains. Alabama has a subtropical temperate climate. The most important types of minerals are coal, oil, natural gas.
Alabama’s capital is the city of Montgomery, which during the American Civil War was the capital of the Confederate States of America in 1861. State status was assigned in 1819.
The name of the Alabama state is received from the name of the Alabama Indians who lived in the lands of the state, in the upper course of the Alabama River.

The Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, Koasati, and, of course, the Alabama tribe inhabited the state. Spaniard Hernando De Soto explored these lands in 1540. The French, led by de Bienville, founded the first permanent European settlement in the area of the modern city of Mobile in 1702. France ceded the territory of Alabama to Great Britain in 1763, and in turn, Great Britain was forced to gave it to the United States in 1813. Spain kept Mobile up to 1813. The defeat of the Creeks in the Battle of Horseshoe Bend led to an influx of white settlers who made plantation slavery the basis of the economy. The city of Montgomery was the first capital of the Confederation. The state was seriously suffered during The American Revolutionary War.
The development of industries began by the end of the 19th century, but monoculture (cotton) led to a large-scale depression in agriculture, reinforced in 1915 by the invasion of cotton weevils. Changes in the economy in the 30’s led to the development of energy and the iron and steel industry. In the 1950s-1960s, despite severe racial problems, the state completely switched to the path of industrialization.
The ethnic population of the state: about 74% – English-speaking Americans, about 25% – African Americans and 1% – Indians, Hispanic people, people from Asia. The majority of the population lives in cities. Most of the community is Protestant. For more than twenty years (since 1963), state policy has been determined by the governor-South Democrat George Wallace; Republicans began to win positions from the end of the 60s.

”’Arizona”’ is a 48th state, which became part of the United States. It is located southwest of the country. Arizona is one of the Four Corners states along with Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico.
Arizona’s capital is Phoenix. It is the biggest city in the state. The town was founded under the name Phoenix on February 25, 1881. In this place was an old Indian settlement. The name is compared with the name of the mythological bird Phoenix.

The first people came to the territory of Arizona about 12 thousand years ago. However, the growth of pre-Columbian culture in these lands falls on the XI-XIII centuries. At that time agriculture and crafts sphere prospered there.
At the beginning of the XVI century, the Spaniards for the first time penetrated the lands of future Arizona. However, they did not seek to stay there. Military posts and the Catholic missions of the Spaniards were rare in Arizona and were often attacked by native Indians.
From the second quarter of the XIX century, which had already become Mexican, colonists from the USA actively penetrate the territory of Arizona. As a result of the Mexican War in 1848, the United States received all the lands of Arizona located north of the Gila River. In 1853, the United States bought another 76,735 km2 from the Mexican government, located south of the Gila River.
Arizona, which had already become a district in 1863, turns out to be the area of the struggles of the Indians for the right to live on their land. The result of that was massive Indian human losses and moving to the reservation.
After that white colonists began to explore all the agricultural resources of Arizona. Arizona was becoming more attractive for development since the new railway was built.
February 14, 1912, the USA President William Taft signed the document to make Arizona 48th state of the USA. For a long time, Arizona remained the youngest state in the country.
The native people of Arizona were apparently not satisfied with the living conditions in reservations. In 1948, the Arizona Indians in the United States Supreme Court won a lawsuit against state authorities — they received the right to participate in elections. Native American activists fought in all legal ways to improve the quality of life of their tribesmen. The first college in the Indian reservation was built in 1969 for the Navajo tribe.
In 1980 Arizona’s population was 16.2% Hispanic, 5.6% Native American, and 74.5% non-Hispanic white. In 2010, the racial makeup of the state was 29.6% Hispanics or Latinos of any race made up and 57.8% Non-Hispanic whites formed the total population.

”’Arkansas”’ is the southern state of the United States of America.
The state is bordered with Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Missouri. In many places, the eastern border of the state is determined generally by the changes of the river flow.
The name of the state comes from the language of the Indians who lived in Arkansas territories.
The word “Arkansas” came in the English language from the French “Arcansas.” In turn, the French, who founded the first settlements on the lands of Arkansas, borrowed the word akakaze from the Kvapo language, which means “the land of people living down the river.”
In accordance with another version, the word Akakaze, that means “people of the southern wind” in the language of Cuy Indians, formed the name of the state.
Arkansas has no large cities. The capital of the state is Little Rock with the 200 thousand citizens.
The Arkansas state was the area of the old French colonies purchased by the United States of America in 1803.

Arkansas was recognized as a part of the United States as a result of the Louisiana purchase, the deal made personally by Napoleon. Initially, it was supposed to sell the USA only New Orleans for 10 million dollars, but Napoleon made a grand gesture and proposed the entire territory of Louisiana for cost larger one and a half times more.
The territory from the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River and from the Rupert’s Land Gulf of Mexico to the Gulf of Mexico covered more than 2 million square kilometers.
The third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, chose to make the deal with some struggles because the USA Constitution did not say anything about the possibility of acquiring land of this size from different countries. The main argument in favor of the “Louisiana Purchase” was the need to rule over the New Orleans port, trade through which was blocked by Spain and France. In 1803, the purchase agreement was signed.
The final price of the transaction amounted more than 23 million dollars. Even if in those times the value of the dollar was many times higher than today, still the United States made a very successful purchase.
Many residents who call themselves “Americans” are English or Northern Irish origins, but their families have been living in the state for so long (sometimes since Arkansas was formed) that they indicate themselves as Native Americans. Many of those who pointed out Irish origin, in fact, have a northern Irish background.
According to a 2006-2008 American Society Survey, 93.8% of Arkansas residents (over five years of age) speak English only in their homes. About 4.5% of the population speaks Spanish at home. About 0.7% communicate in other Indo-European languages. About 0.8% speak Asian languages.

”’California”’ is the third largest state in the USA. It is located in the west of the USA.
California’s capital is Sacramento city. It is the most intense growing big town in the state. The people know the capital of California as the financial hub placed on the West Coast.

The earliest European, visited the California territories in 1542, was Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. He claimed the lands as the property of Spanish. The region received its name California because of the famous Spanish novel, published in 1510, which told about the fictional paradise island of California.
At the very beginning of the XVII century, navigator Sebastián Vizcaíno, a researcher of the California coast and creator of San Diego, Santa Catalina, Santa Barbara, and Monterey names, reaffirmed the Spain rights to this land. However, the persistent growth of California began only at the end of the XVII century, when Spain, trying to gain a foothold on the North American continent and to oppose American expansion, started sending colonists from Mexico to California.
In the XVIII century, the Spanish occupation began in the way of military campaign combined with a religious mission. The Spaniards under the command of Gaspar de Portola and the leadership of the Franciscan monk Junipero Serra carried out the colonization of California. In 1769 they organized the San Diego de Alcala mission (the current city of San Diego), and later another 20 missions that were one day away from each other. The youngest Spanish mission was San Francisco de Solano, founded in 1823.
When Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821, California became its province. However, these lands attracted the northern neighbors of Mexico. The annexation of California was the result of the Mexican-American War (1846–48). The bitterness of defeat for the Mexican people aggravated the discovery of deposits of gold ore near the city of Sacramento. In 1849 the famous “gold rush” began there. Many Mexicans have not yet accepted the loss of California. They dream of returning this territory, and it does not even matter for them that tectonic forces are raging in its depths, causing frequent and intense earthquakes.
However, the danger that waits for the people of California every day does not reduce the number of its population. It is still the most populated state in the United States.
Presently, California is the global leader in the modern technologies industry. Space flights, computer science, microelectronics, biotechnology are the basis of the development of the state.
Silicon Valley is a chain of cities that has the shape of an arc. It starts north of San Francisco and comes to San Jose. This area is known worldwide as the area of information technologies.
California is the most populated state in the United States (12% of the whole population).
There is no absolute ethnic majority in California. Majority of the population is still white, they followed by Latin Americans (almost a third), Asians, African-Americans, and American Indians. Experts predict that Hispanics will constitute an absolute majority of California’s population by 2040. The reasons for this are the massive flow of immigration from Mexico and the high birth rate among them.

”’Colorado”’ is a state in the west of the central United States.
For a long time, this peaceful mountain area was a bone of connection between France and Spain. The USA put an end to this controversy added Colorado in the states’ list in 1876. In Colorado lives 4.3 million people.
The large part of Colorado is located in the Rocky Mountains hilly region. The Rocki Mountains is the natural climatic boundary between the western states, the central and eastern parts of the United States.
Colorado is the only USA state whose entire territory has a height above sea level over one kilometer. The highest point of the state of Colorado is Mount Elbert, the highest peak of the Rocky Mountains and the second highest in the USA, after Mount Whitney in California.
The capital and biggest city of Colorados is Denver. Some different large cities are Pueblo, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Arvada, Englewood, Westminster (USA).

From the 15th century BC to the 12th century AD, Indian tribes lived in this area, calling themselves “Anasazi,” representatives of a developed agricultural civilization. Probably, descendants of these tribes are The Utah and Cheyenne tribes.
In the XVII century, the Spaniards came to the land of future Colorado. After them, the French arrived from the developed colonies of Louisiana. Then a long struggle because of the control over the territory began.
At the beginning of the XIX century The United States of America occupied Colorado, and in 1876 it became the thirty-eighth state.
In the seventies of the XIX century, with the construction of the railway in the region, gold rush started here. However, the gold rush in Colorado was short-lived.
During 1913 there began an addiction to skiing among the locals. So Colorado has become one of the leading centers of skiing.
The territory received its name in the same way as the names of several other states of the Western United States were received.
The first Spanish explorers called the region Colorado, which means “red,” it was the red landscapes of this very “multi-colored” state that the Spaniards initially noticed.
By the way, its nickname, “State of the Century,” Colorado received precisely because of its foundation date. The fact is that in 1876, the United States celebrated the centenary of the Declaration of Independence and the formation of the United States.
The population of Colorado exceeds five million people. Colorado’s population is rising because of natural increase and immigration as well.
Lots of Hispanic residents live in Colorado, mostly immigrants from Mexico or their descendants. Moreover, the Scandinavian, Italians, and Jews descendants live there.

”’Connecticut”’ is a state in the northeastern of the United States, part of the New England region.
The largest city is Bridgeport. The name of the state of Connecticut, like many other names of the USA states, comes from the language of the Indians. On the territory of the modern state of Connecticut lived Indians of one of the Algonquian tribes – Mohegans. The word quinatucquet in Mohegan means “long river.” The names of the Connecticut River and the State of Connecticut comes from this particular word.
The capital of Connecticut is Hartford.

Until the XVII century, the territory of Connecticut was inhabited by the Algonquians, a group of tribes. There were about seven thousand Indians.
The first Europeans settled in Connecticut in 1613. However, in 1633 they were pressed down by English colonists, who began to develop a vast territory, which they called New England. The Europeans moved to the mouth of the Hudson River, and in 1624 they founded the city of New Amsterdam (New York).
The British called the first settlement Windsor.
The Pequot War broke out in 1637. Part of the Indians sided the British, and the defeated Pequots left Connecticut. On January 14, 1639, the Connecticut colony was established, and its inhabitants created a code of laws called Fundamental Orders. That is the reason why one of the official nicknames of Connecticut is “the state of the first Constitution.”
The War of Independence (1773-1783) was the war in which the people of Connecticut distinguished themselves, earning another nickname for their state at the end of the war: “the arsenal of the nation.”
In 1788, the state, among the thirteen first states, adopted the USA Constitution. In 1792, Congress, encouraging the development of industry in the United States, adopted the “income act,” which established high rates of taxes on the import of manufactured goods.
The First World War gave a new stimulus to the development of industry in the state, especially to enterprises that manufactured weapons and ammunition. Moreover, the acquired safety margin was enough to leave the period of the Great Depression of 1929-1938 without much loss. Then, during World War II, there was some other rise of industrial production and a new stage in the modernization and expansion of production for the military-industrial complex.
Around 3,600,000 people live in Connecticut (twenty-ninth in population). The average population density in the state is about 739 / sq mi (fourth in the United States, the population density is higher only in the states of New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts).
Connecticut ranks first among the USA states on the human development index.
The largest cities of Connecticut are Bridgeport (about 145,000 inhabitants), New Haven (about 130,000 inhabitants), the state capital of Hartford (about 125,000 inhabitants), Stamford (more than 120,000 inhabitants) and Waterbury (about 110,000 inhabitants).

”’Delaware”’ is one of the smallest states in the USA. It is located in the Mid-Atlantic or Northeastern region. Convenient location, long history, and developed economy put it in one row with the largest ones.
South Delaware is considered as an agro-industrial area which supplies its products to the USA capital Washington, as well as to New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.
The capital of the state is Dover.

The first people visited the territory of the state arrived from Holland, England, and Sweden at the beginning of the 17th century. The Delaware tribe was fierce warriors, but initially, they peacefully coexisted with the whites. Indians willingly accepted gifts from white people and signed papers to donate their forests and fields. The Indians understood the situation and began to fight the whites when the colony of New Sweden appeared on their territory.
In 1681 New Sweden was finally liquidated, and its lands became part of several English colonies, including Delaware.
In 1767 the lands were divided and the famous “Mason-Dixon line” appeared. It is still part of the border today, separating the states of Maryland and Pennsylvania from Delaware.
By the time this border appeared, there were almost no Delaware Indians. All of them was exiled to Oklahoma and Canada, where they still live on a reservation in the province of Ontario.
During the American War of Independence (1775-83) residents of the state did not want to break the connection with England. Delaware had more independence from the metropolis than other British colonies in North America, and actively traded with Britain.
Nevertheless, it was the voice of Delaware who played a decisive role in the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
Delaware adopted its first constitution, declared itself as a state, and the first governors received the title of President of the State of Delaware.
During the Civil War of 1861–65, the majority of the population of Delaware sided with the northerners, but there were also many who fought on the side of the Confederates.
Delaware very well earned on wars, producing gunpowder and weapons.
With the beginning of the crisis enterprises in the state became smaller, which pushed the state to develop the tourism sector.
Around 910,000 people live in Delaware (forty-fifth among the USA states). The average population density in Delaware is about 469/sq mi.
There are only three counties in Delaware: New Castle in the north, Kent in the center and Sussex in the south. The largest city in the state is Wilmington, which has about 70,000 people. In the capital of Delaware, the city of Dover, lives about 40,000 residents, and the third largest population in the state is Newark, it has around 30,000 people.

Spanish conquistador Juan Ponce de Leon discovered the east coast of Florida in 1513 when he tried to find the beautiful island of Bimini, supposedly located north of Puerto Rico.
According to Indian legends, on this island was the source of eternal youth. Ponce de Leon did not find Bimini and the eternal youth, but, admiring the beauty of the new lands, he invented this name Terra Florida – “the land of flowers.”
In the XVI-XVIII centuries, France and England fiercely fought with Spain for possession of the “land of flowers.” Even the famous English captain Francis Drake appeared here. He plundered and burned the town of St. Augustine. However, Spain continued to retain control of Florida until 1819. Then Spain sold these territories to the United States of America. However, the beautiful peninsula became the twenty-seventh state of the United States only in 1845. During the Civil War between the North and the South of the United States (1861-65), Florida took the side of the South and lost the war.
More than 18,800,000 people live in the state of Florida. The average population density in the state is about 384.3/sq mi (121.0/km2).
The largest cities in the state of Florida are Jacksonville (more than 820,000 inhabitants, eleventh place in the list of the largest cities in the USA), Miami (about 400,000 inhabitants), Tampa (about 340,000 inhabitants), St. Petersburg (about 250,000 inhabitants), Orlando (about 240,000 inhabitants) and the capital of the state Tallahassee (about 180,000 inhabitants).
