Delaware was the First State to declare independence from the British. The lands previously belonged to both Pennsylvania and New York before gaining independence. Delaware was named after the 12th Baron del la Warr, Thomas West, who was the governer of Virginia. It was declared an official state in 1776. Along with being the First State, Delaware boasts a lot of other historical firsts, such as being the site of the first Swedish settlers and the site of the first log cabins on American soil.
