Nature

Delaware, for the most part, lies within the Atlantic coastal plain and has an average height of only 18 m above sea level, the lowest of any state in the United States. Most of the land area is therefore extremely flat. Only a small area in the far north, the Piedmont Plateau, lies within the Appalachian highlands. The southernmost part of the coastline, between the southern boundary of Maryland and Cape Henlopen, faces the Atlantic and forms a narrow sandy beach. Along the Delaware Bay further to the north, the coast is often woody, and natural ports are missing.

Most of the landscape is sandy and monotonous, interrupted only by woodlands and rivers. An important boundary line in the north is the east-west Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. The scenic landscape north of it has the state's highest point, Elbright Road, at 135 meters above sea level. The soil is especially in the north a nutritious, sand-mixed mud, which gives good harvests when well maintained.

The climate in Delaware is humid, temperate with hot summers and mild winters. The average temperature in Wilmington is +1 C for January and 27 C in July, but is 3-4 C higher in the southern part. The rainfall is on average 1 125 mm per year.

Population

Of the state's residents, just over 22 percent are African Americans and just over 70 percent white, descendants of immigrants from many European countries. The majority of the population lives in a limited area in the northernmost part of Delaware. More than half reside in the suburbs of the largest city, Wilmington (71,900 inhabitants, 2016).

Business

Delaware has a distinct industrial appearance, but agriculture is nevertheless of great importance. More than half the area is arable land. Corn and soybeans are the most important crops. The neighboring metropolitan regions constitute a market for growing fresh vegetables and for milk production. The biggest role, however, plays the breeding of poultry. Broiler production accounts for 2/3 of agricultural income.

The industry is concentrated to the north, with Wilmington as the center. The chemical industry is the dominant industry. The Du Pont Group is the largest and, in addition to its head office, also has several manufacturing units in Delaware. Other major chemical companies have also been located here. The products include artificial fibers, dyes, plastics and synthetic rubber. There is also a large pharmaceutical industry, such as AstraZeneca. Furthermore, there is heavy industry such as steel industry and oil refinery.

Delaware has an excellent transportation location. The northern part of the state is crossed by New York / Philadelphia and Baltimore / Washington DC traffic connections The Chesapeake and Delaware canal, which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway system and which can also be operated by ocean-going vessels, is of great economic importance. It significantly shortens the Baltimore-Philadelphia waterway. Wilmington has Delaware's largest port. The State University, University of Delaware, is located in Newark.

Tourism and gastronomy

Delaware's geographical location contributes to tourism and travel business being one of the state's most important sources of income. Along the Atlantic coast are a number of popular swimming and holiday resorts, such as Rehoboth Beach.

Otherwise, there are various small towns with interesting colonial settlements, etc. New Castle and the capital Dover, as well as the big city Wilmington, which is particularly interesting from a Swedish point of view. In Fort Christina National Historic Landmark, in memory of the Swedish colonization in 1638, there is one of the oldest in-service Protestant churches in America (Holy Trinity Church, inaugurated in 1699) as well as a knot-timbered blockhouse erected (partially) during the Swedish era.

A rich mix of seafood and fish, the latter from the sea as well as from the lower course of the Delaware River, belongs to the state's natural conditions and together with the relatively rich harvests provides a varied kitchen, which, however, is not characterized by any major characteristics or subtleties.

The location between New York and Washington means that the international cuisine has penetrated with full force and almost erased the original features such as long cook on meat and beans and a rich pie culture. Nevertheless, fresh, freshly cooked flatfish, mussel soup with vegetables, asparagus with chopped eggs and cranberry pie are still desirable elements in the menu.

History

The first permanent European settlement in D's area was made up of Swedish immigrants, who in 1638 founded the New Sweden colony around Fort Christina (now Wilmington). D. was Swedish colony until 1655 and Dutch 1655-64. Subsequently, D. was taken over by England and later became part of Pennsylvania. In 1776, D. declared himself a state. D. is sometimes called The First State, which refers to the fact that it was the first of the 13 Union states to ratify the new constitution after the North American War of Independence (December 7, 1787). Slavery was allowed, but D. was one of the four slave states that remained in the Union during the Civil War.

Northern D. was industrialized early, and especially the chemical industry became important. Financially, D. has had a positive development and belongs to the leading states in terms of per capita income. Politically, Republicans dominated from the beginning of the 20th century, but after 1936 the influence of Democrats has increased, and today the parties are relatively even. The name D. goes back to a Virginia governor in the early 17th century, Lord De la Warr.
