The list of states in the United States (US) stretches from Alaska in the far north to Florida in the southernmost.

How many states are there in the United States? The answer is 50. The largest is Alaska (1.7 million sq km) and the smallest is Rhode Island (3,999 sq km).

Alaska is so vast, that state is three times the size of France. Uniquely, again, Alaska is not directly adjacent to any other US state.

Alaska used to belong to Russia. On March 30, 1867, the US bought Alaska from Russia at a price of 7.2 million US dollars.

The reason for the sale of Alaska was because Russia felt the cost to maintain the territory was too expensive. Moreover, Russia was experiencing debt problems due to the Crimean War (1853-1856).
