About IndianaIndiana is one of the 50 US states, located in Midwestern United States. It is bordered in north by Lake Michigan and the state of Michigan; in east by Ohio, in west the Wabash River forms a portion of its border with Illinois, and in the south the Ohio River creates the natural border with Kentucky.
The region of what is today Indiana was colonized by the French in the 18th century and ceded to Britain in 1763. It was passed to the US twenty years later in 1783. The region was then part of the Northwest Territory which later became the state of Ohio and the Territory of Indiana. Indiana joined the Union as the 19th state on 7th November 1816.
