Shipping from the State of South Dakota to Utah
The territory that would become South Dakota was added to the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. The first permanent American settlement was established at Fort Pierre by the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804. White settlement of the territory in the 1800sled to clashes with the Sioux, as some of the lands had been granted to the tribe by an earlier treaty. Nevertheless, the territory was incorporated into the union on November 2, 1889, along with North Dakota. Due to a controversy over which state would be admitted to the union first, President Benjamin Harrison shuffled the bills and signed one at random, with the order going unrecorded, though North Dakota is traditionally listed first. Today, a major part of South Dakota’s economy is fueled by tourism–visitors flock to the state to see Mt. Rushmore, which features 60-foot-tall sculptures of the faces of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln. Famous South Dakotans include newscaster Tom Brokaw, senator, and vice president Hubert Humphrey and model-actress Cheryl Ladd.
Shipping to the State of South Dakota to Utah
Mountains, high plateaus, and wilderness form most of Utah’s countryside. At Four Corners, in the southeast, Utah gets together Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona at right angles, the only such meeting of states in the country. Utah became the 45th associate of the union on Jan. 4, 1896, with Salt Lake City as its capital.
Utah is acknowledged for having some of the best skiing in the country, and the mountains close to Salt Lake City receive an average of 500 inches of snow per year. Throughout the 19th century, many Mormons settled in Utah, and today approximately 60 percent of the state’s inhabitants are members of the church. The Sundance Film Festival, one of the premier independent film festivals in the world, is held each January in Park City.
