Shipping from the State of California to Kansas
California is nicknamed The Golden State. It is also well-known by these nicknames: The Land of Milk and Honey, The El Dorado State, The Grape State, and The Bear State. The state tree is the California Redwood, the state bird is the California Valley Quail and the state flower is the Poppy. The state motto is ‘Eureka’ (I have found it).
The City and County of San Francisco is both the country’s second-most densely populated major city after New York City and the fifth-most densely populated county, behind only four of the five New York City boroughs. The state’s capital is Sacramento.
California became a U.S. territory in 1847 as part of the treaty ending the Mexican-American War. An influx of settlers headed to the west coast in search of fortune in 1848 as the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill became known. In 1850, California became the 31st state. Today, California is the 3rd largest state right behind Alaska and Texas by area and it is the most populous of U.S. states.
The State located in the Pacific Region of the United States. California shares a border with Oregon to the north, Nevada and Arizona to the east, and the Mexican state of Baja California to the south. The state’s diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west to the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the east, and from the redwood and Douglas fir forests in the northwest to the Mojave Desert in the southeast. The Central Valley, a major agricultural area, dominates the state’s center. Although California is well-known for its warm Mediterranean climate, the large size of the state results in climates that vary from moist temperate rainforest in the north to arid desert in the interior, as well as snowy alpine in the mountains. Over time, drought and wildfires have become more frequent challenges. The Greater Los Angeles Area and the San Francisco Bay Area are the nation’s second and fifth-most populous urban regions. Los Angeles is California’s most populous city, and the country’s second-most populous, after New York City. California also has the nation’s most populous county, Los Angeles County, and its largest county by area, San Bernardino County
Shipping to the State of California to Kansas
Kansas whose capital is Topeka is bordered by Nebraska in the north; Missouri in the east; Oklahoma in the south; and Colorado in the west. The state is divided into 105 counties with 628 cities. Its largest county by surface area is Butler County. The state is equidistant from both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
Kansas, situated on the American Great Plains, gained statehood as the 34th in the country on January 29, 1861. Its path to statehood was a long one filled with blood. The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 opened both territories to settlement and allowed the new settlers to decide whether the states would be admitted into the union as “free” or “slave”. The north and south competed to send the most settlers into the region and this quickly resulted in violence. Hence the appellation “Bleeding Kansas”.
In 1954, Kansas became a battleground of the civil rights movement when the pivotal Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka case was decided in the Supreme Court. This resulted in the abolishment of the “separate but equal” doctrine in public schools. Kansas is also known for its contributions to jazz music and barbecue.
Kansas has some nicknames including Sunflower State, Wheat State, and Jayhawk State of the country. The state’s motto is “Ad Astra per Aspera” which means “to the stars through difficulties” which simulates its history of struggle.
