History

The Indiana area was inhabited by people long before the Hopewell Culture period (c. 100–400 AD). It was part of Mississippi culture from around 1000 to the traditional end of Mississippi culture, when it met Europeans. The main Aboriginal groups in this area at the time were Miami and Shawnee. This land was claimed by the French in the 17th century, transferred to Great Britain as part of the treaty at the end of the French War and the Indians, and passed to the United States after the American Revolution. Soon after, it became part of the Northwest Territory, then divided into Indiana Territory and joined the Federation in 1816 as the 19th state.

Indiana borders Lake Michigan and the state of Michigan to the north, with Ohio to the east, with Kentucky to the south along the stream of the Ohio River, and with Illinois to the west. Indiana belongs to the Great Lakes region.

The Wabash River, a tributary of the Ohio River 764 kilometers (475 miles) long, intersects the state from northeast to southwest, and it has resulted in two tracks representing Indiana, the state of On the Banks of the Wabash ("On the banks of the Wabash River") and The Wabash Cannonball ("Wabash artillery shell").

Much of northern Indiana is farmland; however, the northwest corner of the state is in the metropolitan Chicago area, making it more populous. Gary, a city on the shores of Lake Michigan, is actually a suburb of Chicago, even though it belongs to Indiana.


Much of northern Indiana is flat farmland with long established small towns, eg North Manchester.
The cities of South Bend, Mishawaka, Elkhart, and Goshen have expanded into an urban area spanning two counties over the past 20 years. The Kankakee River winds through northern Indiana and is roughly the borderline between the countryside and the suburbs of northwestern Indiana.

Southern Indiana blended livestock land and forests. The Hoosier National Forest is a no-hunting area spanning 80,900 hectares (200,000 acres) near Bedford. In general, southern Indiana was more hilly and geomorphologic than the north.
