The Union’s second smallest state, Delaware, is an industrialized and densely populated state. North Delaware forms part of the Atlantic Megapolis – a long strip of cities that stretches from Washington to Boston. At the beginning of it were the wooden dwellings of the first Swedish settlers, who founded Fort Christina (today’s Wilmington) in 1638.¬†See Delaware abbreviation.

The first Dutch colony was destroyed by the Indians. In 1655, the Dutch from New Amsterdam claimed the territory again, but only until 1664, when Britain gained the territory. In 1682, the area was ceded to William Penn (1644-1718) to give his inland colony of Pennsylvania passage on the coast. Delaware acquired its current form in 1704 and its current name in 1776. However, its origins are older. In 1610, Delaware Bay was named in honor of the appointment of Thomas West (1577-1617), Twelfth Baron De la Warr, Governor of Virginia.

During the War of Independence, Delaware was attacked by the British army and its coast was exposed to constant attacks by the British Navy. After gaining independence, Delaware earned its nickname “First State” with the immediate adoption of the Constitution on December 7, 1787. Although Delaware was actually a slave state, many slaves gained freedom here before the outbreak of the Civil War, and the state became somewhat reluctant to become part of the Union.

The development of industry had a significant effect on the demographic composition of the population. The older rural villages around Dover and Georgetown in the predominantly agricultural south are depopulating, while the industrial north has grown into large suburbs, especially around Wilmington, which is now a major center for man-made fiber production.
