Shipping from the State of Alabama to Vermont
On December 14, 1819, Alabama became the 22nd state in the United States. A lot has changed since its statehood two hundred years ago. To date, Alabama is the 30th largest by area and the 24th most populous of the U.S. states.
Alabama is nicknamed the Yellowhammer State, after the state bird the Yellowhammer Woodpecker (Northern Flicker). It is also well-known as the “Heart of Dixie” and the “Cotton State”. The state tree is the longleaf pine and the state flower is the camellia. The state motto is ‘We Dare Defend Our Rights’ (Latin: Audemus jura nostra defendere).
Located in the southeastern region of the United States, Alabama is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west with Montgomery as the capital. Birmingham is the largest city by population whereas Huntsville is the largest city by land area. Founded by French colonists in 1702 as the capital of French Louisiana, Mobile is the oldest city in Alabama.
Shipping to the State of Alabama to Vermont
In the 18th century, the British and French inhabited Vermont. However, both parties were at loggerheads until the French were defeated in the French and Indian war. After the defeat, Vermont was then relinquished to England. Also, in the course of the American Revolution, Vermont declared independence, distinguishing itself from the original 13 colonies, even though the Continental Congress refused to acknowledge it. Eventually, Vermont was admitted into the union as the 14th state in 1790. This happened 14 years after it had become an independent republic.
The state’s name is derived from the word “Montagne Verte”, which is French for Green Mountain. This name resulted in the state’s nickname “Green Mountain State”. Today, Vermont’s mountains are a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders. It is the country’s foremost producer of maple syrup and is the home to the popular Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
