The North of the United States of America and Alaska
The United States of America can be divided into two parts which are the North and the South. But these terms are political and the border between the North and the South is artificial.
The term the North refers to the Northeast Corridor, Great Lake states, Prairie states and Mountain statesand Northwest states.
The Northeast Corridor includes New England states. Those are states where the 13 original colonies were located. The landscape resembles the landscape in England. The states are small, they are extremely densely populated and have the highest level ov education. The Ivy League universities can be found here, for example Harvard u., Yale, NY u., Princeton, … MIT. (ivy should remind us the English tradition). Education almost became business because many people are involved. NE is also a tourist destination. People visit New England in the fall to view the impressive colors of changing leaves. Vermont, the Green Mountain State, is a popular ski resort.
New England is the most historic place in the USA because many historic events took place here. One of the most important events that happened was the Boston Tea Party. The colonists had to pay taxes to the British and were governed by British law but had no representation in the British Parliament. A few angry colonists disguised themselves as Indians (who were workers in the harbour) and dumped all the tea from the ships to the sea. The Americans expected British military revenge but they didn’t know if it comes by land or by sea. Paul Revere should have lit one beacon on the steepletop of the church of Boston if the British came by land or two beacons if they came by sea. Finally, they came by sea and the revolution began… The document that proclaimed America as a free country is the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson.
