Alaska Of Interest

Russia invaded the territory now known as Alaska in 1741 and decimated much of the native population. The Russian Czar’s rule eventually weakened and Alaska became a territory of the United States on March 30, 1867, with the purchase price of $7.2 million. Most Americans thought of it as a frozen wasteland. One journalist was quoted as saying “The mystery is not why Russia wished to sell Alaska but why the United States wanted to buy.”

Alaska is the only U. S. state to extend into the Eastern Hemisphere and has the highest mountain in North America, Mt. McKinley. It is the largest of all the states, being one-fifth as large as all the other states combined and it lays claim to the nation’s largest area of forest.

Alaska is the leader in the U.S. for commercial fishing catch — mainly salmon, halibut, herring, crab, shrimp, and cod. Anchorage is the major fishing port, and the freezing and canning of fish makes up the bulk of the food-processing industry, the state’s largest manufacturing sector. Mining is the state’s most valuable industry and it is chiefly of petroleum and natural gas. Timber is of great importance, although questions over logging in the state’s national forests are brought up constantly. A main cause for settlement near the end of the 19th century, gold is no longer mined in great quantities. Fur-trapping, Alaska’s oldest industry, survives and pelts are obtained from many different animals.
