Indiana is a Midwestern US state located at the 'Crossroads of America' (Seventh Street and Wabash Avenue intersection at Terre Haute).
Indiana is bordered in east by Ohio, in west the Wabash River forms a section of its border with Illinois, in the south the Ohio River creates the natural border with Kentucky, in north it shares a state line with Michigan. Indiana has also a short coastline at Lake Michigan in north west.
Native American tribes lived along the waterways of the area for thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans.
The region was then part of the Northwest Territory, which later became the state of Ohio and the Territory of Indiana. The first Constitution of the State of Indiana was completed and adopted on 29th June 1816. Indiana joined the Union on 11th December 1816 as the 19th state.
Geography of Indiana
Indiana is relative small in size (US rank 38), it occupies an area of 94,321 km² (36,418 sq mi) , compared it is somewhat larger than Portugal (92,090 km²), but it would fit more than seven times into Texas.
Indiana can be divided into three main geographical regions:
I. The northern third of the state is dominated by the Great Lakes Plains, a landscape with rolling to flat farmland, dotted with small cities and towns. Much of Northern Indiana is considered part of Amish Country.
II. The Tipton Till Plain in the central third is the most populous region, and right in the middle Indiana's largest metro area, Indianapolis metropolitan area. The flat to gently rolling landscape of the Till Plain is the product of continental glaciation during the Ice Age. In the east of the plain, north of Richmond is the highest natural point in Indiana, known as Hoosier Hill, at 383 m (1,257 ft ), located in central east near the state's border with Ohio.
III. In the southern third is the Southern Hills and Lowlands region, a mixture of farmland, forest and very hilly areas. It is the part of Indiana that has not been covered by the Continental Ice Sheet. The region includes the flat Wabash Lowland, the hilly terrain of the Crawford Upland, the karst area of the Mitchell Plain, and the rugged Norman Upland.
Indiana had a humid continental climate, with cold winters and hot, wet summers. Only the southernmost portion of the state is within a humid subtropical climate.
The Wabash River is the longest river in Indiana, its main tributaries, the Salamonie River, Mississinewa River, Eel River, Tippecanoe River, White River, Vermilion River, and Embarras River drain Central Indiana. The source of the Iroquois River, a tributary of the Kankakee River, which is a tributary of the Illinois River, is in Indiana.
Indiana's largest lakes are artificial. Patoka Lake in southern Indiana is a reservoir that was created by damming the Patoka River. Lake Monroe is Indiana's largest lake. The reservoir was created by damming the Salt Creek. On its southern shore is Charles C. Deam Wilderness Area, the state's only federally protected wilderness area.
For its size, Indiana has a massive population, 6.64 million people (2017 est, US rank 17)  live in "The Hoosier State" (Indiana's nickname).
