What is the largest state by area in the United States of America? Here is a list of the top ten biggest states by size: Alaska, Texas, California, Montana, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Oregon, Wyoming. Many States have large areas of water. These include the States of Michigan and Wisconsin in the Great Lakes region of the Northern US, and the humid Gulf States of Florida and Louisiana. There are, of course, many other States that may not have vast areas of water within State, but which are Ocean - facing, as well as States that have small areas of water in terms of percentage, but numbers simply reflect the size of the State itself. The smallest states by area are, of course, District of Columbia at just 68 mi and Rhode Island at 1 545 mi. Interestingly, there are only a handful of tiny states; Delaware, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Vermont are only other States with total area of under 10 000 mi and numbers increase significantly from that point onwards, emphasizing just how large the United States as a country is.

Relief

The expansion of the American republic was sustained by its vast abundance of physical resources. As great powers of Europe pursue their imperial dreams in Africa and Asia, United States enjoy luxury of build - in empire. The Westward movement may be understood as a type of domestic imperialism, with many of the same motives as the imperialist movement in Europe, but with profoundly different results. The Native culture of North America was not merely conquered but destroy; integrated capitalist democracy developed in its place. The second set of acquisitions in the period 1843 - 53 completed contiguous area of the continental United States. Protract negotiations for the territory of Oregon finally ended in compromise in 1846. The Texas Republic was annex in 1845, and the vast Mexican cession was spoilt by War in 1849. Finally, there was Gadson Purchase in 1853, bought from Mexico to control a promising railroad route. Compared with other acquisitions, it was trivial in size - a mere 30 000 square miles, approximately area of Scotland. This enormous landmass was occupied almost as swiftly as it was acquire. Before 1776, Americans had been slow to settle interior, which they call back country. After 1800, back country became a frontier in American speech, and lines of settlement advanced westward with astonishing speed. By its conventional definition, frontier is commonly understood to be the outer edge of an area with a population density of at least two people per square mile. Before 1783, that line was still largely east of the Appalachian mountains except for small settlements on dark and bloody ground of Kentucky. Thirty years later, great centre of the continent was occupy. By 1820, frontier had crossed Mississippi. And by 1840 it had reached 100 meridian.S Plains beyond were subdued after 1865 with the aid of new technology - steel plough, six - shooter, and barb wire fence. After the census of 1890, superindendent of census observed that for the first time in American history, single frontier line was no longer visible on the map. The Frontier, in that sense, had come to an end. But as experience, myth and symbol, frontier continue to dominate American thinking even today. Movement, progress, energy, expectation, confidence, prosperity and hope which it engender still remain central to American culture. The unique experience of build - in empire makes it especially difficult for Americans to understand the conditions of other less fortunate people, and for others to understand America as well. For indigenous Indians, every American cliche runs in reverse: expansion becomes contraction, democracy becomes tyranny, prosperity becomes poverty, and liberty becomes confinement. Before 1800, million Indians lived North of Rio Grande, speaking 2000 languages and subsisting in small villages on maize, game and fish. The Coming of Europeans caused the flowering of Indian culture. From whites, Sioux obtain their horses, Navajo, their sheep, Iroquois, their weapons. But destruction quickly follow.
