Shipping from the State of Vermont to Alaska
In the 18th century, the British and French inhabited Vermont. However, both parties were at loggerheads until the French were defeated in the French and Indian war. After the defeat, Vermont was then relinquished to England. Also, in the course of the American Revolution, Vermont declared independence, distinguishing itself from the original 13 colonies, even though the Continental Congress refused to acknowledge it. Eventually, Vermont was admitted into the union as the 14th state in 1790. This happened 14 years after it had become an independent republic.
The state’s name is derived from the word “Montagne Verte”, which is French for Green Mountain. This name resulted in the state’s nickname “Green Mountain State”. Today, Vermont’s mountains are a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders. It is the country’s foremost producer of maple syrup and is the home to the popular Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
Shipping to the State of Vermont to Alaska
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”.
