Indiana – a state in the northeastern United States, one of the states of the Midwestern United States. Area – 94.3 thousand km 2. Population – 6.08 million people (14th place among the states; data from 2000). The capital and largest city is Indianapolis. Other significant cities are Fort Wayne, Evansville, Gary, South Bend, Hammond.
In ancient times, an advanced mound builder culture, part of the Mississippian culture, flourished in the state. By the time the Europeans arrived, the Miami, Potawatomi, Delaware, and Kickapoo Indian tribes lived here.
The first Europeans to settle in the region were the French. In 1679 Robert de Lasalle explored the area. In 1725, the New France colony was established here. The first settlement founded by the Jesuits was Vincennes. Subsequently, the land passed from the French to the British. They controlled Vincennes (Vincens) from 1763 to 1779. As a result of the War of Independence, American militia units under the command of George Rogers Clark gained control of the territory.
In 1800, the Indiana Territory was established, covering present-day Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin, as well as parts of Michigan and Minnesota. William Henry Harrison became governor of the territory. After the battle on the Tippecane River (1811), the Indians were finally pushed back from their lands.
According to itypetravel, Indiana was admitted to the Union on December 11, 1816, becoming the 19th state of the United States and the second state created in the Northwest Territory. The first state constitution was adopted in the same year, then, in 1851, it was replaced by another, which is still in force. The capital of the state was at first the city of Corydon, but in 1825 Indianapolis received this status.
In 1834, the first railroad appeared in Indiana, which greatly contributed to the development of the state. In the Civil War, Indiana did not take an active part, although it supported the northerners.
