United States - North Dakota
North Dakota is both a Midwestern
and Western state in the United States. It is the northernmost of the Great
Plains states and is the northern half of The Dakotas. During the 19th century,
North Dakota was considered part of the Wild West. Formerly part of Dakota
Territory (named after the Dakota tribe of Native Americans), North Dakota
became a state in 1889.
The Missouri River flows through the western part of the state and forms Lake
Sakakawea behind the Garrison Dam. The western half of the state is hilly and is
home to natural resources including lignite coal and crude oil. In the east, the
Red River forms the Red River Valley, which holds rich farmland. Agriculture has
long dominated the economy and culture of North Dakota.
The state capital is Bismarck and the largest city in the state is Fargo. Large
public universities are located at Grand Forks and Fargo. The United States Air
Force operates bases at both Minot and Grand Forks. more from ...
