Since its founding as a territory, settlement patterns in Indiana have reflected regional cultural segmentation present in the Eastern United States; the state's northernmost tier was settled primarily by people from New England and New York, Central Indiana by migrants from the Mid-Atlantic states and from adjacent Ohio, and Southern Indiana by settlers from the Southern states, particularly Kentucky and Tennessee. Indiana has a diverse economy with a gross state product of $214 billion in 2005. Indiana has several metropolitan areas with populations greater than 100,000 and a number of smaller industrial cities and towns. Indiana is home to several major sports teams and athletic events including the NFL's Indianapolis Colts, the NBA's Indiana Pacers, the WNBA’s Indiana Fever, and the Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 motorsports races.

Military Dictionary and Gazetteer

  1. indiana

    One of the Western States, and a portion of the great Mississippi Valley country. It was settled in the early part of the 18th century by the French; was subsequently ceded to the English, and after the Revolution passed into the possession of the United States. The early settlers were for a long time troubled by the incursions of the Indians; but after their signal defeat by Gen. Harrison at Tippecanoe, November 7, 1811, they were soon afterwards subdued, and became peaceable. Indiana was admitted as a State in 1816, and during the civil war contributed its full quota of troops to the support of the Union.

Pete Buttigieg WEBSITES ON BLACK AMERICA PLANS USED STOCK PHOTOS OF MINORITIES The 37-year old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, gained significant ground in recent months in Iowa, which holds United Nations first caucuses in February. Pete Buttigieg is bunched at the top of most polls in Iowa with candidates who have much longer political resumes. Veteran Democratic consultant and communications strategist Lynda Tran said Pete Buttigieg is on the rise, and that means Pete Buttigieg should anticipate the other candidates on stage this week to set their sights on Pete Buttigieg campaign.
