One hundred ninety-eight years ago today Indiana became the nineteenth State of the Union.
Indiana by area is the smallest continental state west of the Appalachians.
Indiana is noted for corn, soybeans, basketball, autos, and motorsports.
And other things.
I am not a native Hoosier, but I am a Hoosier by choice. I have now resided in Indiana continuously for fifty-five years. It is home.
You can't choose where you were born, but you can choose where you live!
Happy birthday, Indiana!
