In 1819, as part of the Louisiana Purchase, Arkansas became a separate territory, and later on June 15, 1836, it achieved statehood as the 25th state. It was the ninth state to secede from the union and join the Confederate States of America. Today, Arkansas is the 29th largest by area and the 33rd most populous of the 50 United States.
Arkansas is located in the southern region of the United States. Its neighbors are Missouri to the north, Tennessee and Mississippi to the east, Louisiana to the south, Texas to the southwest, and Oklahoma to the west. The state’s diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozark and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U.S. Interior Highlands, to the densely forested land in the south known as the Arkansas Timberlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta. The capital city, Little Rock, is positioned in the central portion of the state. The largest city in the state’s eastern part is Jonesboro. The largest city in the state’s southeastern part is Pine Bluff.
Arkansas is currently nicknamed The Natural State or The Land of Opportunity. It is also well-known for its former nickname The Bear State. The state tree is the Pine, the state bird is the Mockingbird and the state flower is the Apple Blossom. The state motto is ‘The People Rule’ (Latin: Regnat populous).
Shipping to the State of Arkansas to North Carolina
North Carolina was the first state to demand its delegates to vote for independence from the British. This happened during the Continental Congress. The state developed a vast slave plantation system after the revolutionary war. It went on to become a chief exporter of tobacco and cotton. However, the slave population in North Carolina stayed relatively small in comparison to other southern states. Although no significant battles were fought in the state, North Carolina had more recruits fighting for the Confederacy than all other rebel states. North Carolina became the first place to have the first manned self-propelled aircraft flight in 1903. This took place when the Wright brothers took a flight off from a cliff near Kitty Hawk.
North Carolina gained statehood on 21st November 1789, with “Esse Quam Videri” translating “To Be Rather Than to Seem”.
The state has borders with Virginia to the north and Tennessee to the west. It also has Georgia and South Carolina to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Raleigh is the state’s capital, and Charlotte is its biggest city.
In 1587, 150 colonists from Plymouth, England, landed on Roanoke Island off the coast of North Carolina and disappeared without a trace. It is one of the fascinating mysteries in the United States.

On 17th December 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright had their first powered airplane flight, which covered merely 120 feet and lasted only 12 seconds.
During World War II, about 10,000 enemy soldiers were trapped within 18 prisoner of war camps all over North Carolina.
