Shipping from the State of Alaska to Nebraska
On January 3, 1959, Alaska became the 49th state of the United States. Alaska is the largest U.S. state by area and the seventh largest sub national division in the world. Conversely, it is the 3rd least populous and the most sparsely populated of the 50 United States.
It is located northwest extremity of the United States West Coast, just across the Bering Strait from Asia. The Canadian province of British Columbia and the territory of Yukon border the state to the east and southeast. Its most extreme western part is Attu Island, and it has a maritime border with Russia (Chukotka Autonomous Okrug) to the west across the Bering Strait. To the north are the Chukchi and Beaufort seas—southern parts of the Arctic Ocean. The Pacific Ocean lies to the south and southwest. It is technically part of the continental U.S., but is sometimes not included in colloquial use; Alaska is not part of the contiguous U.S., often called “the Lower 48”. The capital city, Juneau, is situated on the mainland of the North American continent but is not connected by road to the rest of the North American highway system. Anchorage is the largest city by population.
Alaska is nicknamed The Last Frontier. It is also well-known as the “Land of the Midnight Sun”. The state tree is the Sitka Spruce, the state bird is the Willow Ptarmigan and the state flower is the Forget-me-not. The state motto is “North to the Future”.
Shipping to the State of Alaska to Nebraska
On 1st March 1867, two years after the civil war ended, Nebraska became a part of the Union, making it the 37th state in the country. The state possesses a lot of lands suitable for farming and ranching activities. Before it became a state, Nebraska had a small population that later grew during the California Gold Rush in 1848. This increase in population came with a large wave of settlers arriving as homesteaders in the 1860s. Omaha was the state’s initial territorial capital of Nebraska, but the seat later moved to Lancaster. After Abraham Lincoln’s assassination in 1865, Lancaster was renamed Lincoln in his honour.
Nebraska shares boundaries with South Dakota to the North, Colorado to the South, Wyoming to the West and Iowa and Missouri to the East. It has the appellation Nicknamed “Cornhusker State,” and its motto is “Equality Before the Law.”
