"O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!" The United States is known for A LOT of things. Often considered the biggest world power, it has also been named the "land of the free" and a "melting pot." While the former names are markers of American history, the latter is given for the diverse people and cultures you'll see pop up in major American cities. From Los Angeles to Miami, can you correctly match the major U.S. city to its state?
Before becoming one of the world's greatest powers, the United States had humble beginnings. Prior to its independence from Great Britain, the country started off as thirteen colonies. After seeking independence from Great Britain during the American Revolutionary War, the United States began forming in 1787 with the ratification of the Constitution by Delaware. This country that started as 13 colonies would later grow to become 50 states in what is now the third largest country in the world. Within these states, you'd find some of the major cities in the country and even around the world. Could you match them to its state?
