Alaska is the largest of the United States in area though third smallest in population. This state occupies the northwest extremity of the North American continent, separated from the coterminous United States by West Canada. It is bordered by Yukon Territory and British Columbia in east, the Gulf of Alaska and the Pacific Ocean in sourth, the Bering Sea, Bering Strait, and Chukchi Sea in west, and the Beaufort Sea and the Arctic Ocean in the north.
In 1867, Russia sold Alaska to the United States for $ 7,200,000. The U.S. purchase was accomplished solely through the determined efforts of Secretary of State William H. Seward, and for many years afterward the land was derisively called Seward’s Folly or Seward’s Icebox because of its supposed uselessness.
