“O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise, the True North strong and free! From far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.”

Moulsons, Back-Bacon and Tewkes for Everyone!

Alaska became the 49th State on January 3, 1959

“Seward’s Folly”?  Alaska was purchased from Russia in 1867 for $7.2 million ($120 million adjusted for inflation).  Alaska is the largest state in the U.S. by area, measuring 663,268 square miles, and has a longer coastline than all the other states combined.  According to a 1998 report by the US Bureau of Land Management, approximately 65% of Alaska is owned and managed by the Federal Government as public lands.  The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the population of Alaska was 731,449 on July 1, 2012.
