Shipping from the State of Arizona to New Mexico
Arizona was originally part of New Mexico; however, the land was yielded to the United States in 1848 and became a separate territory in 1863. On February 14, 1912, Arizona became the last of the 48 contiguous United States to be admitted to the union.
Arizona is located in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states. Arizona is the 6th largest and the 14th most populous of the 50 states. Arizona shares the Four Corners region with Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico; its other neighboring states are Nevada and California to the west and the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California to the south and southwest. Both the capital city and the largest city is Phoenix.
Arizona is nicknamed “The Grand Canyon State”. It is also well-known as “The Copper State” and “The Valentine State”. The state tree is the Palo Verde, the state bird is the Cactus Wren and the state flower is the Saguaro Cactus Blossom. The state motto is “God Enriches” (Latin: Ditat Deus).
Shipping to the State of Arizona to New Mexico
The state that is now New Mexico was first colonized by Spain and was included in the Gadsden Purchase in 1853. However, New Mexico did not officially become a state of the United States until 1912. The top-secret Manhattan Project, in which leading American scientists created the first atomic bomb, took place in New Mexico during World War II.
The bomb was tested at the Trinity Bomb site close to Alamogordo in 1945. When a local farmer found unidentifiable debris on his property in 1947, some people in Roswell, New Mexico, began to wonder if there might be extraterrestrial life there. They thought it might be the wreckage of an alien spaceship that had crashed.
