Tobacco existed in Kentucky long before the establishment of the commonwealth Kentucky. Native Americans; such as the Shawnee, utilized tobacco medicinally and ceremonially. European settlers brought it with them to central and, eventually, western Kentucky, and until the late 1920s, Kentucky produced more tobacco than any other state. Kentucky remained the largest burley and dark tobacco producer, and ranked second, in total pounds produced, to North Carolina.
Kansas has many state parks and the popular place is the monument rocks and the castle rocks.

Post-Civil War North Carolina, as a part of the “New South”, was supposed to be an economically and morally prosperous state that was no longer reliant on slave labor. Unfortunately, the abolition of slavery did not abolish the misfortune of black and white North Carolinians alike before 1900. Racism was still very much alive, blacks did not enjoy the rights they supposedly acquired after the war, the same rich families from before the war were still rich, and the people that were poor before the war were still struggling.

The 1850s were a time of attempted compromise when compromise was no longer possible. The Union was becoming divided through many events in the time leading into the Civil War. The North and South had too many hostilities to account for. Socially, the North and the South could not stand what the other would do or say with anything. Politically, the government was completely divided and undecided. And economically, the South began to prosper as the North began to struggle. Thus, during the 1850s, socially, politically, and economically there was not any compromise that could fix the problems beginning to occur.

Going into the 17th century, many territories started to join the United States of America. Indiana was the 19th state to be admitted into the union on December 11, 1816 and still exists today. The French first discovered Indiana in 1679, but later was taken over by George Rogers Clark who led the American army in the Revolutionary War. Indiana became a very agricultural state majoring in growing corn. With its ample history, Indiana has transformed from a dull state to a thriving state in the Mid-West.
Due to one of the railroad stops being in Oklahoma, that drove people to populate Oklahoma. When the mines were discovered, they were used for coal, which helped the small economy of the new state grow. Today, those mines possibly could be mined out for coal, or
The origin of the Chesapeake and the New England regions was English. But, they’re societies were entirely different. Both regions had different intentions on why they were going to settle in the New World. The regions had social, political, and economical differences, which led them to two different directions. The social differences between these two regions were evident as time went on.
Kentucky was on the home of various Native American peoples before the arrival of Daniel Boone and other European frontiersmen in 1769. Its name perhaps derives from an iroquis word for ¨prairie.” By 1792, when Kentucky was admitted as the 15th state of the union—the first west of the Appalachian Mountains—it had drawn nearly 73,000 settlers. By 1800 this number had grown to roughly 220,000 and included some 40,000 slaves.

The Black Belt is roughly 300 miles long and runs through Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi. In addition, it has rich, dark soil which makes it great farming and agriculture. Another region is the Cumberland Plateau. It is known for its red clay soil. Along with that, It has rolling hills, sandstone ridges, and other great things in this stupendous land region. Another addition to these neat regions is the Gulf Coastal Plain. It has many wetlands which are vital sources of shelter for many birds and fish, but almost half of the wetlands were destroyed for agriculture. Right now Alabama is trying to reverse it and bring back those wetlands.
Out of all the four regions, it is known as the smallest region compared to all the other regions in Europe. New England was also mainly for economic trade.

It ran through Massachusetts and Rhode Island, it was called the birthplace of America's industrial revolution do to its lack of resource but large amount of land.
