Nebraska was granted statehood March 1, 1867 and to celebrate the state's birthday I've decided to post some random tidbits and some photos of Nebraska from my archives:)
State Flag with the State Seal, taken into use in 1925.
Some of the state symbols are:
Motto: Equality Before the Law
Nickname: Cornhusker State
Bird: Western Meadowlark
Gemstone: Blue agate
Rock: Prairie agate
Song: "Beautiful Nebraska"
Mammal: White-tailed deer
Fish: Channel catfish
State American folk dance: Square dance
River: Platte River
Soft drink: Kool-Aid
More information on state symbols can be found here.
And here are 20 extremely random photos from Nebraska :)
Hope you have enjoyed the seeing the real Nebraska! :) Looking at my old photos was a lot of fun and I might just do this Nebraska photo post again sometime soon :)
