Several states, such as Arizona, were part of territories that also formed other states (Arizona was part of the New Mexico territory, and Washington part of the Oregon territory).
However, only four states have been created from existing states. West Virginia and Kentucky were both split off from Virginia: Kentucky in 1790 and West Virginia during the Civil War. Most of Tennessee consists of areas once part of North Carolina, which were split into the Southwest Territory from 1790 to 1796. The state of Vermont was originally claimed by both New Hampshire and New York. Its residents established an independent republic from 1777 to 1791, when it became the 14th US state.
Most of them now live in the states of California, Texas and other southern states that were once part of Mexico.
There are no other countries that are a part of the United States. The United States of America is its own country.
Hawaii and Alaska do not border other states.However, the correct term for the "lower 48" is the contiguous states of the US.
Yes, once an amendment is ratified by the required number of states, it becomes part of the US Constitution.
The two states that are not contiguous are Alaska and Hawaii. The other 48 states are part of the continental US.
No more then the other US States.
South Dakota is part of the United States, so it is surrounded by other US states.
Alaska is part of the region of the US referred to as the Pacific States. The other states in this region are California, Oregon, Hawaii, and Washington.
No- none of the states of the US want to leave the United States. North Carolina is very happy to be a part of the US nowadays.
There have been 5 states created from lands once part of other states:Vermont declared independence from New York and New Hampshire and was a separate republic from 1777 to 1791.Tennessee was originally part of North Carolina, until ceded to the federal government as the Southwest Territory in 1790.Kentucky was part of Virginia until it separated to become a state in 1792.Maine voted to separate from Massachusetts in 1820, becoming the 23rd US state.West Virginia was created in 1863 from the western counties of Virginia that supported the Union in the US Civil War.
As the United States does not allow for the secession of a state once it enters the Union (that is, once joined, a state can never legally leave), and the current count of states is 50, there has never been 52 states. That is, it is legally impossible for more states to have once been part of the United States than the current count of states, at any given point in history. (Note: that even during the US Civil War, the Union side considered the Confederate side to NOT have legally left the Union, so that there was no reduction in the number of states still legally part of the United States).
I guess, most states in the US has ski resorts. Maybe except Texas or other deserted part of US
The two states not part of the 48 contiguous US are Hawaii and Alaska.
Puerto Rico is part of the Unite States but it is not part of the contiguous United States. Puerto Rico is an island. Being contiguous means being next to. The continuous US consists of the 48 states that have land borders with one another, and thus are "next to," or contiguous with, each other. Except for minor coastal islands that are part of states, you can eventually drive or walk from any place in the contiguous US to any other place in the contiguous US without going into another country or crossing any body of water other than a river.
The US bought Louisiana (and around 12 other states) in 1803 from Napoleon (who was the ruler of France)
Alaska and Hawaii are US states that don't border other US states.
The Bush family, where the US Presidency goes from father to son and (who knows) to other son.

There are much too many cities and states to name that are not a part of the US.
