It is the largest state in area, covering 570,374 square miles and was purchased from Russia in 1867 for $7.2 million.
At first Alaska was called "Seward's Folly" after the Secretary of State who engineered its acquisition.
The "folly" turned into a bargain when gold was discovered in the Klondike in 1896.
Alaska is famous for its national parks, abundant wildlife and vast expanse of wilderness.
