Delaware

by Joshua

People from Delaware are famous for building log cabins and were also the first people to build log cabins. Most of the people from Delaware were English, Quakers, or Swedish.

Delaware and Pennsylvania used to be known as two of the three "Lower Colonies." Delaware's name came from a Virginia governor named Lord De La Ware. The colony of Delaware started in 1638. In colonial times, Delaware's capital was Dover. Delaware was the eighth colony ever settled.

The Lenapes are just one Native American tribe who lived in Delaware. Native Americans were very unhappy that people were taking over their land, so the Native Americans fought back at the settlers.
