Shipping from the State of Alaska to Wisconsin
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 Wisconsin
Wisconsin became a U.S. territory just after the American Revolution and soon after began charming settlers looking for work in its mining, lumber, and dairy sectors. It was accepted into the union as the 30th state in the United States in 1848. Years before the Civil War, Wisconsin was a vital stop on the Underground Railroad, with many enslaved people passing through the state in their search for freedom in Canada.
This day, Wisconsin leads the United States in dairy production and is popular for of its superior cheddar cheese. The cheese is so rich, residents sometimes refer to themselves as “cheeseheads.” Reputable people from Wisconsin include architect Frank Lloyd Wright, magician Harry Houdini, and U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur.
