About New Hampshire State
New Hampshire is a state located in the New England region, northeast of the United States. It is the 5th smallest and 9th least populous state, with Concord as the capital and Manchester as its largest city. Also known as "The Granite State" for its extensive granite formation, New Hampshire is also widely known for being the first state to hold national primary elections. The state's motto is "Live free or die," epitomizing its spirit of independence.

History of New Hampshire
The region was inhabited by Algonquian tribes before the first European settlers arrived. In 1620, the Council for New England gave a royal grant to Captain John Mason - governor of Portsmouth, Hampshire, England - and Sir Ferdinando Gorges, which were land rights to the area between the rivers Merrimack and Kennebec. This area was called the Maine province. Mason then sent 2 groups of settlers to the land to create a fishing town.

In 1629, Mason took the area between Merrimack and Piscataqua, and named it New Hampshire, after his England hometown of Hampshire. The region merged with Massachusetts in 1641 to form a coalition, but was separated in 1680 by order of the British king. In 1699, the two regions were again united, and finally separated for good in 1741.

In 1746, Wentworth - the region's governor- and his friends, purchased the rights from Mason. The land eventually became an official state of the United States in 1788.

Geography
The New Hampshire region is dominated by the White Mountains. Its highest peak is Mount Washington, which is 6,228' high from sea level. The state is bordered by Massachusetts in the south, Vermont on the west, Maine and the Pacific Ocean on the east, and Canada's Quebec to the north.

The state has 7 different major regions, which are the Great North Woods, the Lakes region, the White Mountains, the seacoast, the Merrimack Valley, the Monadnock region, and the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee area.

The northern part of the state is made of tree-covered forested lands and the southeast the coastline. New Hampshire has the highest percentage of timberland area in the country, and the shortest ocean coastline of only 18 miles.

The peak of Mount Washington is famous for the place of the world's 2nd highest wind speed ever recorded at 231 miles per hour in 1934. Several deep and glacier-carved lakes are found across the state, as a result of the latest Ice Age.
