Alaska is the largest state in the U.S. Alaska hosts the tallest mountain in the North American continent, "Denali," at 20,320 feet. Only 1% of Alaska is constituted of privately owned land. Alaska was purchased from Russia for around 7 million US dollars. At first this purchase was not popular among Americans, dubbing the purchase 'Seward's Folly' (named after the U.S. Secretary of State who engineered the sale, William Seward). Before too long, large amounts of gold and many other minerals were discovered, followed by oil and gas reserves. Alaska became a territory in 1912, and was admitted to the U.S. union on January 3rd, 1959. it then became the 49th state.
