Happy 145th Birthday Nebraska!

Nebraska became a state on March 1st, 1867.  It was the 37th state in the nation.

We can thank the gold rush for becoming a state. Before that, Europeans just weren’t settling here.  According to Wikipedia, Nebraska is the 8th least-densely populated state and home to a lot of German and Czech-Americans.

Happy Birthday, Nebraska! Isn’t our state seal lovely?
