How is Alaska part of the US but not connected?

The lower 48 states were settled in a continual westward expansion so that all of the states are connected. Alaska however was not settled by us but by the Russians and later purchased by the U.S. At the time Alaska was purchased Canada was already settled and established therefore the U.S. could not expand and settle the land between the lower 48 states and Alaska connecting the two. The only way they could be connected is if the U.S. owned what is now British Columbia, Canada.

Was Alaska a colony or a territory?

After Alaska's purchase it was named a Department and placed under the control of the US Army until 1877. The US Department of the Treasury was then given responsibility for the area for two years at which time it was turned over to the US Navy. Alaska suffered benign neglect from purchase until 17 May 1884 when it was renamed the District of Alaska and placed under the control of a Governor appointed by the President of the United States. For more then three years an Army Captain had complete control of what would become the largest US State.

As a District it remained an orphan for 29 years under seven different political appointees. In 1912 it was given status as a US Territory with 10 appointed (two acting) Governors.

It 1959 it became a US State with it own elected Governor (William Egan who is the only Alaskan born Governor to hold that position). It was never a Colony and was rarely well goverened with the possible exception of Egan's years as the First and Fourth Governor.

Is Alaska a good place to go on vacation and why?

It can be, but it isn't a vacation paradise that everyone would love. For those that enjoy the great outdoors it is a great place to visit. There is excellent hunting and fishing available with record trophy game. Alaska has worthy vistas for the nature lover with countless glaciers, rivers, mountains and fjords. Consider combining a sea cruise as part of the trip for some genuine creature comfort.

What group of small islands forms the long tail of Alaska?

The Aleutian Islands, including Attu and Kiska, which were once captured by the Japanese during World War II.

They extend southwest into the North Pacific Ocean towards Russia, forming the southern border of the Bering Sea. The islands cross the International Date Line, and so may be considered both the westernmost and the easternmost parts of the United States.

The islands are named after the Native Aleut tribe who created Alaska's name, Alyeska (AH-Ley-eh-ska)
