In February, we learned about carousels and their start as part of "little wars" in ancient times. You can read last month's post if you missed it.
Today, I'm going to start with the first of 5 total posts on the origins of the state names in the United States. These will be sprinkled throughout the rest of this year, not the next 4 months. So, let's go!

* Which one of these states was the most fascinating to you?
* What do you think might be the origin of any of the other 40 states? (you'll learn about them throughout the year)
