Shipping from the State of Alaska to Virginia
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 Virginia
Virginia, which was a part of the initial colonies, was one of the first parts of the United States to be permanently inhabited by the English. The English then went ahead to create Jamestown on the shores of the James River in 1607. Virginia is the home state of reputable personalities such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and some other founding fathers. The state played a crucial role in the American Revolution, which lasted between 1775 and 1783.
In addition, during the Civil War, which occurred between 1861 and 1865, the city of Richmond, Virginia, became the capital of the Confederacy, and more than half of the war’s battles were fought in the state. Today, many government organizations have their headquarters in Virginia. This is most true about Arlington, which is located across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. Asides the eight presidents from there, other famous Virginians include singer Ella Fitzgerald, tennis star Arthur Ashe, actress Shirley MacLaine and authors Willa Cather and Tom Wolfe.
