Best Answer

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.

Was there ever 52 states in US?

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).

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.
