North Carolina's southern neighbor is South Carolina, although South Carolina isn't all that south, since more than half of it is north of North Carolina's southernmost point, and South Carolina also has a town called North making it North, South Carolina.
South Carolina was the site of the first civil war battle, and the civil war ended up having a total of one battle over in Indiana, where the Indy 500 speedway is, which is so enormous that you could comfortably fit the entire country of the vatican inside it.
It can also fit 400,000 people which is the highest capacity of any sports arena in the world.
Indiana's state beverage is water, while Oregon's is milk. Portland, Oregon is home to the world's smallest park according to the Guinness world records book, mill end park.
Oregon is also one of the few states to not have a sales tax along with New Hampshire, the only state to have no law requiring adults to wear seat belts.
Connecticut Lake, in New Hampshire, is the source of the Connecticut River which is what Connecticut the state is named after.
Hartford, Connecticut's airport, at less than 3 million passengers per year, is the smallest airport in the US to have a direct flight to Europe.
Delaware, on the other hand, certainly doesn't have a direct flight to Europe since its the only state that you can't fly to.
There's not one commercial flight in or out of this tiny state. It's the second smallest state behind Rhode Island which is so small that the entire state grows by 3% during low tide.
Rhode Island's second largest city, Warwick, shares its name with Warwick Pennsylvania, and in Pennsylvania is Centralia where the ground has been on fire since 1962 due to a coal mine fire, and its expected to burn for over 200 years.
Pennsylvania borders Minnesota, well not really, but Pennsylvania Avenue does intersect Minnesota Avenue in DC, and Minnesota is home to the northernmost point in the lower 48.
You see, most of the US-Canada border is defined by the 49th parallel, but a surveying error led to this.
The couple hundred residents of this area, called the Northwest angle, are completely out off from the US, and need to pass into Canada then back into the United states to go to school.
Also in northern Minnesota is Virginia, the town, but Virginia, the state is massive, so massive that Ewing Virigina, is closer to eight other state capitals than it is to its own state capital, Richmond.
Alexandria, Virginia is actually closer to Toronto, Canada, than it is to Ewing, Virginia. Virginia also happens to go farther west than west Virginia.
Virginia is also home to this place, the headquarters of The Teaching Company who run the Great Courses Plus.
弗吉尼亚也是这个地方的所在地，它是美国教学公司的总部，他们经营着Great Courses Plus平台。
And with that super smooth transition, I do have to thank the Great Courses Plus for sponsoring this video.
有了这个超级平稳的过渡，我必须感谢Great Courses Plus赞助这个视频。
