Delaware has the prestigious honor of being the first of the United States, which it officially did in 1777. Appropriately enough, the motto of this state is, "Liberty and Independence," and it was named for Sir Thomas West, Baron De La Warr, who was the first colonial governor of Virginia, which in turn was the first English settlement in the Americas. It is the second smallest state in the nation, at only 96 miles long, 35 miles across at its widest point and only 9 miles across at its more narrow point in the north. Despite its small size, this state is one of the most densely populated. Geographically, Delaware consists of a single plain that does not rise more than 450 feet above sea level at any point. Agriculture has been important to the economy of Delaware since the state was first settled. Cotton was a major crop during the time of slavery, but nowadays, Delawareans farm mostly poultry, dairy, soybeans and corn. Though the state has been settled for hundreds of years and much of it is devoted to farmland or urban areas, there are a number of forests and natural areas that continue to dot the state. The cities in Delaware are home to a number of universities, including the University of Delaware, Wilmington University, and Wesley College. Shopping, dining and patronizing the arts are all common activities in Delaware. Visitors and residents can also enjoy many museums and historical sites that have been preserved through the long history of the state.
