Nevada
The politics of the Civil War weighed heavily in Nevada achieving statehood. There was a rush to grant the territory statehood in order to help President Abraham Lincoln’s re-election bid in 1864. To that end, the entire state constitution was sent by telegraph to Washington, D.C. It was a process that took more than seven hours to transmit. Statehood was gained just eight days before the election, with the Civil War still raging. This led to Nevada’s nickname “Battle Born,” which is featured on the state flag.
 
Nevada means “snow-covered” in Spanish. But Nevada is a land of contrasts. Most of the state is desert, and almost the entire state lies within the Great Basin desert. The desert is broken by mountain ranges, such as the Sierra Nevada along the western border with California. With 172 mountains at 2,000 feet or more high, Nevada is the most mountainous of the lower 48 states.
 
Nevada is rich in mineral resources, particularly silver. Discovery of the Comstock Lode in 1857 marked the beginning of large-scale silver mining in America, as settlers rushed to the region to find riches. The industry has made Nevada the second-largest silver-producing state in America, inspiring another nickname – the “Silver State.”
