The 50 State's Adventures: C6: 2 Down, 48 to GoHello, I'm State of New Jersey, but call me Jersey. I'm known as the "Garden State." My territory is 8,721 square miles. I may be the third state to be admitted (December 18, 1787), but I am one of the richest. I wear fine clothing, eat fine foods, and I even have a fine house. I enjoy singing, playing the piano, and writing up blogs. Like Delaware, I have a Dutch heritage. I have to admit, I was very selfish. I wasn't really looking out for the "little guys." When the Great Depression hit, I learned that being humble is the way to go. Man, I had to ask for help since I don't have any good land for crops.
During the Revolutionary War, I was stuck as the "crossroads." The two battles of Trenton were point turning events in the war that were good for America. I remember watching General Washington cross the Delaware that one night. I was snooping around when I saw them crossing the river. Heck, I even help to give tips about the Red Coats. I just leave notes at the general's tent during
The 50 State's Adventures: C5: Second BestHi! I'm Common Wealth of Pennsylvania but Pennsylvania or Penn will do. Like my bros and sisters, I got nicknames too: "Keystone State," "Quaker State," "Coal State," "Oil State," and "State of Independence." That's right! I'm am the home of the Revolutionary War! I just love the attention! Did I just say that? *Shrugs* Any way, I'm the second state to join the Union on December 12, 1787. My territory is 46,055 miles per square. Dude, I love sports! That's why I wear a Steelers' leather coat! GO TEAM! I love it! Football, racing, baseball, man I love it all. Playing them is total fun and a great way to stay fit. I am told that I act like America too much. Where does that work? Like Deli, I have a Dutch heritage but, I fell a little Swedish too. I'm not so sure.
The Revolutionary War was a mess! Delegates are visiting my major city, Philadelphia, for the Continental Congress. I have to admit, I spied on those meetings. I was caught, only a few times. My fellow 12 and I stayed out of the
The 50 State's Adventures: C4: Number 1Hello, my name is State of Delaware but you can call me Delaware. I also have these nicknames: "The First State," The Small Wonder," "Blue Hen State," and "The Diamond State." As you know, I am the first state to be admitted to the Union which was December 7, 1787. My territory is total of 2,490 square miles or 6,452 kilometers square which makes me the second smallest state. I do have many likes: I do love tea, attending festivals, and taking enjoyable walks. I know this may sound strange but the Blue Rules are active here. I am not a huge fan of it but, it helps to make the people feel more comfortable. I also have a Dutch heritage for since they were the first to settle here. Weird right?
Well, I guess you want to know more how I became a state and what I think of my fathering nation. Well, America is dumb but strong, courageous, and open minded. But he is still dumb. Where shall i start?
It was after the great Revolutionary War. The other 12 and I watched the whole battle between t
The 50 State's Adventures: C2: TroubledThe only thing I can hear is the pounding of my heart. He holds my weapon still firm in his hand. He looks at it and smiles.
"The irony that you choose a similar weapon to mine."
I yank my weapon from his hand. I almost fell backwards. He didn't look surprised at all.
"I'm nothing like you."
"I didn't say that."
I glance around: everyone is staring at me. Iowa and Hawaii are in shock and Hawaii looks like she is gonna cry. New York even came in and gives me a angry glare.
"You should control that anger of yours. You might hurt someone."
As he starts to walk away, my rage builds up again.
"Walking away like you did last time?! You don't even give a sh-"
I turn around and I see America and he is more than just pleased: he is ticked off.
"What on Earth are you doing?!"
"Take an easy, America. We were just chatting."
"Can it Russia! I don't want you involved in this! Alaska, I saw what happened and I'm getting hounded by the UN Military."
*Pesh* "Not my fault."
The 50 States' Adventures: C1: Rough Start"Awe come on Alaska! It's not like the end of the world!"
"You know exactly why!"
"Don't think like that. Besides, it's our duty as the states, right Iowa?"
I HATE this time of year. Every year starting in September, the UN gathers for the world meeting. We the states are responsible for the security as well as keeping good ties with the nations we trade with. Iowa and Hawaii always (quite literally) drag me along to make sure I go. I am a social guy but...I just don't want to meet Him.
"New York looks more tense as ever."
New York all ways guards the entrance of the building since, well, the UN is in his state after all (in one way, yes). I all ways try not to look at his scar upon his right eye. Good thing he didn't loose eye sight in that eye.
"Of course Hawaii. Remember 9/11? He still blames him self for it."
"I know Iowa," I see her place her hand on her shoulder. "I know that feeling too well."
Dang it! I hate it when Hawaii gets upset. She still remem
