Kentucky, a state of the United States
of the East South Central region; 105,000 km2,
4.3 million residents (2010). The capital
is Frankfort (25,500 residents; 2010). Enlisted in the Union
in 1792 as the 15th State. Nickname: The Bluegrass
State. Check searchforpublicschools for public primary and high schools in Kentucky.
Apart from a black minority of just under 8%, the inhabitants are
mainly descendants of European immigrants from the 1800s and
1900s. Immigration slowed down around World War I, and since then
population growth and economic growth have been low. The migration
from country to city has also been modest, with just over half of
the population still living in rural areas where poverty is
pronounced. In 1994, a total of 19% of the population had an income
that was below the official poverty line. The main occupations are
agriculture, industry and mining as well as trade and finance.
One of the most productive agricultural areas is found in
the Bluegrass region of central Kentucky. The area is known for
tobacco growing and breeding of thoroughbred horses, but also, like
agriculture elsewhere in the state, has a large production of
soybeans, maize, meat and dairy products. The products form the
basis for the food and beverage industry incl. cigarette factories
and whiskey distilleries (bourbon). These and other significant
industries (textiles, machinery, automobiles, etc.) are almost all
gathered in and around the major cities of Louisville
and Lexington. In contrast, mining (coal, oil, gas) takes place at
scattered sites in the Allegheny Mountains and the west of the
Cumberland Plateau. Coal production is the most important and for
many years has been among the largest in the United States,
regardless of periodic crises and serious environmental
problems. The forests (deciduous forest), which cover 47% of the
area, are only of minor economic importance.
The climate is rainy and temperate with hot summers and cool
winters. On the west side of the Allegheny Mountains in the eastern
part of the state, several tributaries extend to the Ohio
River border in the north.
Attractions include the Cumberland Gap mountain pass and the
limestone caves of Mammoth Cave National Park. Kentucky is also home
to the worldwide fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken, the
Kentucky Derby horse race, Fort Knox military facility and
popular bluegrass music.
Already in the 1700s. Native American tribes such as
the Shawnee and Cherokee, the colonial powers of Great Britain and
France, and from the 1760s also settled settlers from Virginia and
North Carolina because of its location between the Appalachians and
the great rivers on the north-south border. Daniel Boone stood for
the first colonization attempt in the 1770s. In 1792, Kentucky was
admitted to the United States as the first state west of the
Appalachians. In the first half of the 1800-t. Negro slavery became
widespread in the state, but as one of the so-called frontier slave
states, it remained in the Union during the American Civil
